Weealla picks up Raby Merino flock
Weealla Merinos and former Raby manager Ashley Bell have joined forces to buy the Raby Merino stud flock.
The historic Raby Merino stud flock has been bought by the McBurnie family, Weealla Merino and Poll Merino stud, Balladoran, in partnership with former Raby manager, Ashley Bell.
The sale includes all stud ews, sires, sale rams, and 2017 drop ewes and ram lambs.
The well-respected Mr Bell, manager of Raby for 23 years, will be retained as classer and stud representative for the Raby stud flock.
The famed Raby stud was established near Warren in 1898 and was maintained by a succession of owners until the sale of the station last year by its foreign owners, Hassad Australia.
Hassad sold the property covering 9783ha with a long frontage to the Macquarie river as well as access to Crooked and Duck creeks to a consortium of local buyers.
