2018 Kerin Poll: Exposed Open Day feedback video

Here is a video from our Kerin Poll: Exposed Open Day on August 24, 2018, featuring a series of interviews with people who came along for the day. Thank you to all who participated in this video...

 


Warren-based Henry Welsh, "Raby", describes his transition to Kerin Poll

WHEN Henry Welsh began sourcing his rams from Kerin Poll eight years ago, he was conscious of the then-raging mulesing debate and had a goal to plain up his sheep. Little did he then know just how much one sheep stud - and the stud’s principal - would influence the path of his farm business. Henry and Emma Welsh, “Raby”, Warren, join 7000 Merino ewes a year, and Henry claims his adoption of Kerin Poll has been adoption of a full “genetic package” that includes business integrity, a highly soughtafter marketing brand, a learning journey, and challenges to much more than the status quo.

Foundation client, Phil Hunter, "Minnamurra", Yeoval, is interviewed in this video about why he keeps coming back to Kerin Poll, year after year, and why he's excited about the stud's future. "The stud is staying out in front of their clients by a number of years and I know, by talking with other clients, that they're happy with the progress the stud's making as well as their own progress," Phil says.

Click here to read the story that went with this SMH video on July 14, 2012

And for a piece of useless trivia... the journalist behind this story/video told Nigel that this video was - up until that time - the most watched SMH video ever for the early morning timeframe, up to 9am on the day the story was published! More people visited this video about a bloke and his expensive working dog than they did the video of Osama Bin Laden's body following his death in May, 2011! We couldn't believe it, when told!

Plain-bodied sheep to get shearers' preferential treatment

Kerin Poll shearing contractor reveals a few home truths about the future of shearing

Ralph Blue, Blue Shearing Services, comes across more poorly-maintained wool sheds than enough. He often asks the grazier, "what's your oldest piece of harvesting equipment?" Invariably, the grazier points to a hay baler or header. Ralph's quick to inform them that the answer is in fact their shearing shed. 

In this video, Ralph discusses why for as far as he and his industry are concerned, plain-bodied Merinos are the only way of the future.



For Ralph Blue's written testimonial, click here.

Below is a story about the shearer shortage crisis that appeared in The Land newspaper on August 11, 2011. In this story, Wellington-based trainer/shearer, Jim Murray, says, "It would be a crying shame to see ... the industry deteriorate because we couldn't get the wool off them."
