Description:

Van Diemen Storm was breed on our farm back in Australia after years of planning and strategic breeding. He is a strong and powerful male who is well grown and exhibits huge substance of bone. His correct frame is well covered in fleece and he has a head type that we are looking to bred into our herd.
The fleece that Storm produces is what separates him from other grey herd sires as it is very dense and super fine. He tested 15 microns at 13 months of age and his fleece at 6 years is only 22.1 microns. It is very rare to find such an advanced and highly productive fleece on a frame like Storm’s. Not only is his fleece super fine but it is also bright and very uniform in colour and micron. His long staple length and fast growth rate contributes to his high annual fleece weight.
His dam is a stunning medium grey female who consistently produces top medium grey cria year after year. His sire, Huntley Park Anzac is one of Australia’s best and well known grey sires. With these genetics in his pedigree and a stunning phenotype Van Diemen Storm is already beginning to make an impression in our herd and he is available for outside stud service.
