OWNERS: CT MERRIMAN & SON

Koonwarra Merino Stud is owned by C T Merriman & Son, which is a partnership between Charlie, Pip and Jono Merriman. CT Merriman & Son runs a mixed farming enterprise, involving two merino studs – Koonwarra Merino Stud and Merrignee Merino and Poll Merino Stud – and a poll hereford stud – Merrignee Poll Hereford Stud –  as well as cropping.

CT Merriman & Son operates two properties – Little Range and Campbellfields. These adjoining properties are situated west of Boorowa, on the South West Slopes of NSW, approximately 16kms from Boorowa on the Cunningar Road to Harden.

Charlie and his wife Pip have lived at Little Range since 1977. Until 1990 Charlie was a partner in Merryville Pty Ltd, which was managed by Charlie’s father, Bruce Merriman. In July 1990, after Bruce’s death, Charlie and Pip separated from Merryville Pty Ltd. They commenced C T Merriman & Son with their one-fifth share of Merryville Pty Ltd. They also started Merrignee Merino & Poll Merino Studs and Merrignee Poll Hereford Stud on their property.

Merrignee Merino Stud is a superfine and fine wool stud. The addition of Koonwarra Merino Stud allows CT Merriman & Son to service a bigger clientele with a more diverse choice.

They had known and admired the quality traits of the fine-medium wool of the Koonwarra sheep for many years. Koonwarra Stud has a rich history of which you can read more here.

STUD MASTER: JONO MERRIMAN

Charlie and Pip’s son Jono has taken the reigns at Koonwarra from May 2014 and is very enthusiastic and committed to continuing the Stud’s success.

Jono has worked at Egelabra Merino Stud at Warren under the wonderful direction of Cam Munro and spent much of his time with the stud sheep at Eenaweena. Jono graduated from a 3 year Marcus Oldham course in 2005 and then spent much of 2006 working with cattle, including on a cattle stud near Calgary, Canada – a totally different experience than when he worked in the Northern Territory on the then Packer-owned group of properties in 2001.
