HISTORY

Mertex was founded in 1996 when we purchased 10 pure Texel ewes from the Australian Texel Corporation.

We then bought another seven ewes and a stud ram in 1997 when the Texel corp sold out. We have since then slowly built up our numbers and bought ewes from various other breeders including, Woolbrook, Coolana, Lamont Park, Tullamore Park and are now running around 150 stud ewes. We have done several A.I. programs and did an E.T. program in 2004. We are continuously improving the breed by keeping their valuable meat attributes and gradually making them longer. We are increasing sales year by year and have sold semen in New Zealand, America and around Australia. At Mertex we also have a prime lamb operation. We run around 2000 ewes which consist of Texel, East Frisian, Border Leicester, and Merino.

We sell our Texel cross lambs directly to the butcher at 21-22kg dressed weight (Plaza Meats in Horsham). We have also topped the Horsham market with our Texel cross lambs numerous times.
