What Merrydowns clients have to say

"For the last 9 years we have been purchasing Merrydowns Romney and Southdown Rams and see no need to change.

The Southdown cross lambs are born between the end of July to mid-August, and we dock about 150% ,
by the end of October we have our first draft and send off about 60% at 18.5 kg plus.

The rest are weaned and 90% of them are away by Christmas while the money is still pretty good.

The Romney Rams have given us a Ewe flock that now has very good temperament, improved our wool weights
and colour and are a pleasure to work with and even look at. Both breeds of Rams “live forever”, and they are very fertile,
they work very well when out at mating and they recover quickly. The Southdown Rams are “grunty buggers” and always 
amaze our drafter on what an early wonderful cross lamb they produce.  

We are sure after purchasing Merrydowns Rams you will be like us, very pleased with 
what they produce and it is a pleasure to deal with Blair and Sally."


Glen Tui Partnership, Marton

"We have been buying rams from Blair and Sally Robertson for eight years.  
Our lambing percentage has been increasing along with the numbers of lambs we’re getting 
away off their mothers.  Another important factor for us is that our wool clip is of high 
standard, the microns have reduced without losing fleece weight or length.

As an ex stock agent, I feel it has been refreshing to deal with a genuine stockman who I feel 
is honest, straight up, and the consistency of these true to breed Romneys prove themselves, 
especially in an industry plagued with exaggeration, false claims and dishonesty."
