Tullamore Park has played a key role beginning thirty years ago in establishing the Texel breed in Australia, with the purchase of 168 embryos from Lamb XL New Zealand and all six genetic family lines represented.
Since arrival in Australia Tullamore Park have been a part of growing the Texel breed that could deliver a genetic gene pool with a carcass having the yield with tasting eating qualities that melt in your mouth, not to forget the dual purpose of the ewe.
Increasingly over 30 years we have seen how the Texel breed have assisted other breeds especially with infusion into Maternal Dams that has created a dual-purpose composite ewe. The attribute of Texel has added strong maternal traits coupled with fertility, placid temperament with the ability to finish twins and triplets. They have the ability flourish, forage and survive our varying harsh seasonal conditions in the Southern Mallee.
The unique double muscle myostatin gene of the Texel is part of their genetic gain in the industry. Our clients over the years have been buying our sires to produce high yielding lamb carcasses.

The Russell’s have continued to refine the breed with partaking in Sheep Genetics and the MLA Satellite flock and Resource trials, which have aided our Texel’s to improve with genetic gain.
We have been particular on selecting structural correctness, feet and legs for the distance our animals have to travel for water and feed, smooth shoulders for lamb ease. We have been selecting for our animals not to get too big but maintaining all those great qualities of a Texel.

Over the years we have been humble in winning numerous championships including three supreme interbreed sashes at major shows and recently attending 2022 Melbourne Royal taking out Champion Ram and Reserve in the Stock Scan Performance Class. The Geelong Royal Champion Ewe 210008 winning Supreme Texel, including some of the top Texel genetics in Australian will be available at our dispersal Sale in February 3rd, 2023.
