One of the earliest registered Merion Studs in Victoria "Blythvale" SRS Merino Stud has been purchased by Parkdale. Parkdale purchased all adult sheep , purchasing 250 wool and frame ewes and 7 sires. Blythvale sires have been recorded as among the highest density Merinos ever tested.

Parkdale was offered first selection at the "Kiabra" Poll Merino Stud dispersal sale (Armidale). We purchased 5 stud sires and 22 young ewes.Our aim is to introduce SRS genetics from a summer rainfall. We plan to continue to breed a pure "Kiabra" line.
Parkdale purchased 172 of the top wool and frame ewes from "Blue Gate" disoersal sale (Deniliquin). These sheep have very white and fast growing wool of 130mm at ten months and will fit right in at Parkdale.
Wether lambs sold for $5.70 per kg dressed.
