Manahune Sheep Stud White Dorper Stud

Charles started breeding stud sheep in Queenstown in 2007 breeding Dorper and White Dorper Sheep, and in 2011 we started a Texel stud.

In 2013 we moved up to North Canterbury, and early in 2019 we purchased Manahune. Charles and Emma farm Manahune with their two daughters Amelia and Madison.

Manahune is a 380 Ha livestock breeding farm on Glenmark Drive, known for being early country that dries out over summer, but we plan for a good spring and autumn.

We are wintering 2800 fine Halfbred ewes, 380 Stud ewes, 60 Ram Hoggets, 500 Ewe Hoggets (commercial and stud) 55 Hereford Cows and trading options aswell, season dependant.

We have now 2 sheep studs, Limavady Suffolks and we also farm in partnership the Bellfield Southdown Stud. The White Dorpers and Texels have been dispersed.

Selling rams is the main objective for us with our Suffolks and Southdowns, and we have sold stud and commercial rams and ewes throughout New Zealand and also to South America and Asia.

We take sheep to a few A and P shows, and have enjoyed success. Aside from the competitive side of shows, it is a great way for us to compare our stock to the best other breeders have, and see where we can improve on.

Please feel free to contact us about any inquiry you may have.
