The Merino Stud

The Winona Merinos

The Winona Merino Stud was founded in 1949 by Colin Seis’ father, Harry, but the Seis family has been continually breeding Merino sheep in Australia since the 1860’s when Nicholas Joseph Seis selected his first ewes and rams. He then started the wool growing tradition that has continued to this day. 

As a result, Winona has nearly a century and a half and five generations of knowledge to draw upon. It is this background of sheep breeding and husbandry, as well as property management skills that have moulded the Winona Merino into what it is today.
