WHAT IS AN AUSTRALIAN WHITE?
The Australian White sheep was developed to be self-replacing and require minimal maintenance.
Developed at Tattykeel in NSW, this breed is suitable for a variety of climates and its short hair means there is less need for shearing and pest management.
Australian White sheep are easy to care for and can be very profitable.
IMPORTANCE OF MAINTAINING TATTYKEEL RED TAG CERTIFICATION
Right from the very beginning the Tattykeel Red Tag was established to not only reward those who have supported the Tattykeel program but to outline the superior article.
The Tattykeel Red Tag Certification program, is a program that maintains integrity & quality through careful selection based on both phenotype and genetic background. To be eligible for the Tattykeel Red Tag, the ewe must simply be of ‘pure’ Tattykeel genetics. By breeding from Tattykeel Red Tag Certified ewes, the producer can be guaranteed that the ewes are of Tattykeel genetics, breeding true to the Australian White type.
Once you have made the investment into the Tattykeel Red Tag Certified program it is important to maintain that status. To maintain the Tattykeel Red Tag, the producer is required to continually & solely purchase Tattykeel Australian White Rams, introducing another prefixed Australian White Ram, will simply void your eligibility for the ‘Red Tag’.
In recent times a Tattykeel Red Tag Certified ewe has generated up to $600 more than an ordinary ewe and are still seen to be receiving serious premiums in a currently downward market.

THE WAGYU OF THE SHEEP
Eating quality is king in the red meat world, and health benefits aren’t far behind.
The Wagyu breed has long been regarded in the cattle world as unsurpassed for its eating experience, thanks to its marbling qualities, and its softer unsaturated fat makes it sought after as a healthy meat choice.
The Australian White sheep breed is now claiming similar characteristics for its meat, due to the low melting points of the intramuscular fat and high levels of Omeaga 3. (Peer reviewed studies and research has been conducted by Tattykeel in partnership with James Cook University.)
