Terrick West

At Terrick West Poll Merinos we develop sheep genetics that consistently transfer breed value from
the stud to the paddock.
Our priority is high-volume, high-quality and soft-handling 18-19 micron wool on large fertile dual-
purpose animals – delivering consistent returns in all soil, feed and climate conditions.
We take a measured approach to stud breeding, using experience and data to sustainably introduce
profitable traits without upsetting the genetic balance of the flock.
This approach drives our own stud and commercial flock operation at Terrick West Estate, our family
farm on the Northern Victorian plains north west of Bendigo.

Terrick West and the McGauchie Family

The Terrick West Stud was founded by Edgar McGauchie and his sons Cyril and Eric in 1932.

Today Eric’s son, stud-master Ross McGauchie runs Terrick West Poll Merinos with his wife Robyn

and daughter Claire.

Claire is the fourth generation of McGauchies to help set the vision and direction of Terrick West Poll

Merinos.

A balanced and sustainable approach

Over four generations at Terrick West we have always cared for our land and our animals.

We take a balanced approach to innovations that sustainably improve our stud, our flock, our

industry and our home.

We are proud to produce the most ethical and sustainable fibre in the world by continuously

nurturing our animals and our land.

At Terrick West we run 1,000 stud ewes and 1,200 flock ewes across 9,000 acres of dry land

pasture (lucerne, sub, rye and cereal stubbles) and limited irrigation (lucerne) from an average

annual rainfall of 400mm (last 100 years of data).

Our rams are vaccinated and certified to MN3 (Ovine Johne’s) making them eligible for entry into all

states and territories. We are also Brucellosis free.
