HISTORY

 

The Janmac Poll Dorset stud was formed in 1979 by Malcolm and Janet Hausler, in Goroke, Victoria.

 

In the early years, quality rams were purchased from well known and respected studs including Gadang, Malkay and Noel and Betty Drury’s “Austeco” stud.  Throughout the 1990’s several top Kentish Downs sheep were bought including 21-96, a massive ram that took our stud to another level.

 

In 1999, Janmac were fortunate enough to purchase 179 top quality ewes from “Austeco.”  These large framed ewes fitted in perfectly with our own sheep and quickly expanded our stud.  In recent years we have secured many big, well muscled rams from the influential Kurralea and Ulandi Park studs.  Other sires used can be viewed in our sires group.

 

Grant and Kerry, Bryce and Hannah and their families currently manage Janmac, with input from Malcolm, and look forward to the future with confidence.
