Our Heavy Cutting Merinos are from the Merino breed and this breed has adapted perfectly to the hot and dry climate in Australia. Our Heavy Cutting Merinos strain is large framed, open faced and plain bodied which also makes it an easy maintenance animal. Our Heavy Cutting Merinos are hardier sheep for the tougher areas of Australia and produce a fleece of about 100mm with a fibre that has a diameter of 22.6 microns and upwards.

The stronger wools from our Heavy Cutting Merinos are much harder wearing and are mostly used alongside blended polyester and acrylic materials to produce lower costsuiting fabrics. Our Heavy Cutting Merinos wool fibres are also used in the auto industry for seating and wall coverings. The building sector is also catching on and finding use for our Heavy Cutting Merinos wool as wall coverings in construction projects.

Poll genetics are thought to have existed in our Heavy Cutting Merinos Merino breeds for years. During the perfecting of the Heavy Cutting Merinos Merino breed. While the Heavy Cutting Merinos Merino breed was being developed, hornless male lambs were termed as 'sports'. These 'sports' were then mated with Heavy Cutting Merinos Merino ewes and, over time, was honed for the highest quality pollness. This resulted in a Heavy Cutting Merinos Merino without horns which has now been named as the Poll Merino.
