Borambil Merino Stud was established by the Mathews family in 1968 and was purchased in 2006 by Rodger and Kim Mathews. In 2012 the stud relocated to “Collendina” Corowa and is operated in conjunction with commercial winter and summer cropping, and beef cattle enterprises in a 500ml rainfall environment.
Traditionally based on Roseville Park and Nerstane bloodlines, the introduction of new genetics has assisted Borambil Merino Stud in increasing sheep size and wool cut. In 2014, Borambil Poll Merino Stud was established based on Moorundie and Poll Boonoke bloodlines.
Borambil stud principal, Rodger Mathews continues to focus on wool quality, wool cut, and well-nourished skin types on sheep that are easy care with quick maturity, high fertility and strong conformation. Borambil's stud ewes are typically 70-80kg mature body weight, cutting 8.5kg of 19.0 micron bright white wool.
Borambil Merino and Poll Merino Stud has been long supported by renowned stud advisor Bill Mildren. Borambil currently works closely with Landmark's Rick Power (stud advisor) and David Johnson, and Elders' Rex Bennett.
