We have been continuously enhancing our data collection efforts for the rams we offer for sale. We are pleased to once again provide genotyping and ASBVs for all our rams, giving you greater insights into their genetic merit and delivering even more comprehensive information about these animals. Recognizing the importance of assisting you to make informed breeding decisions, we have also invested in genotyping our entire young breeding ewe flock. This comprehensive genetic profiling of both our rams and ewes ensures we can provide you with the most accurate and reliable data to guide your breeding program towards your specific goals. As always we maintain a balanced approach by combining this genetic data with our thorough visual assessment of productive skin, sound structure and constitution.


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.


Our new Facebook page TERRICK WEST POLL is now up and running. Terrick west Poll Merinos is no longer in use.

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


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.
