Ella Matta Poll Merinos
Rams Featuring in the Classings Classic Sale Sept 2016

Our Poll Merino ram breeding program started in the early 90's and has used a range of bloodlines in pursuit of the best possible genetics. In 2002 our flock entered the Merino Validation Program, thereafter it has been fully measured with complete pedigrees recorded on Sheep Genetics Australia. In 2012 we successfully registered with the Merino SA - SA Stud Merino Sheep Breeders Association.

Our main aims/achievements are to:

  • Increase fleece weight
  • Improve carcase traits (growth, fat & muscle)
  • Maintain a low micron
  • Breed worm resistant sheep

Other aims/achievements include:

  • Large framed and early maturing sheep
  • Bright white crimped wool
  • Plain bodied and wrinkle free sheep
  • Dermatitis and fleece rot resistant
  • Good type and structure
  • Long stapled free growing wool
  • High fertility and number of lambs weened
  • Sheep that perform in all conditions (wet or dry)


We continue to utilise MerinoSelect to improve our studs performance and productivity, along with a thorough visual selection process. Our most recent endeavours have seen us using genomics and DNA testing coupled with embryo transplants and artificial insemination, pushing us forward to produce the rams of the future.

Animal Health

Ella Matta has kept a closed flock since 1999 to ensure that we maintain our disease free status, with new genetics only being obtained through (frozen semen) Artificial Insemination. All rams are OJD MN3 vaccinated, Brucellosis Accredited, vaccinated for Scabby Mouth and with 6 in 1.

Bred For The Real World

Our sheep are run in as close to commercial conditions as possible, and selected accordingly (i.e. rams not kept/hand fed in sheds, and ewes lamb in the paddock). To breed sheep that not only survive but thrive in commercial conditions, they need to be bred and recorded in commercial conditions!

Quality Rams Guaranteed

We are very strong on customer satisfaction and guarantee our rams. We believe that our rams are of the highest quality and speak for themselves.
