At Ruppert's Corriedales and Cormo Sheep, we strive for Corriedale sheep that are consistently correct, straight topped, long bodied and sound on their feet and legs. With our introduction of Australian Corriedale breeding, our Corriedales now have unmatched fleece quality. Our Cormo sheep are selected primarily for their high-quality fleeces.

Our wool quality took a giant leap forward with the introduction of semen from 2 sires of the Liberton Corriedale flock in Victoria, Australia. Jim and Brenda Venters (www.liberton.com.au) were kind enough to share the wonderful Liberton Corriedales genetics, with their beautiful, soft and lustrous fleeces, with our Corriedale flock. We recently introduced semen from 2 additional Liberton rams, including P10, a national winner in Australia. See his picture and pedigree at the Venters' website. Thanks again to Martin Dally (www.toprams.com) for his AI assistance. We invite you to stop by the farm to see the results.
We are so grateful to our friends in Australia for helping us improve our wool quality and restore classic Corriedale breed type to our flock. Jim and Brenda Venters have provided a solid genetic base with predictable fleece quality and sound bodied sheep. Now we have added a tremendous stud ram from Andrew and Judith Nicolson's flock in Campbelltown, Tasmania. Their stud, Streanshalh, is flock number 3 in Australia, established in 1908. We added semen from Streanshalh 190, "Damien," with the aim of bringing our average micron count down. We are just getting started with him, and we are finding that the Streanshalh/ Liberton combination is beautiful so far. Come and see for yourself what the best Australian Corriedale blood can do!
