The Australian White (AW) was developed by three major sheep stud operations in Australia over several years and was launched in 2011.
Utilizing embryo transfer, artificial insemination, and selective line breeding, the “best” characteristics of the four source breeds were used to develop the AW.
The original design was to be a self-replacing meat sheep that sheds its own hair, can survive in extreme weather conditions (from cold and wet to hot and arid environments), early maturing, and breed year-round.

Solving One Of The Biggest Challenges
In The Middle East
The Middle East have only two options, either import animal feed to feed inefficient animals, or import meat. Neither provide a fair, affordable or economically viable model to farmers or consumers with the cost of both animal feed and meat in the GCC some of the highest in the world.
A lack of available and affordable animal feed ,95% of all animal feed in the GCC is imported from overseas at a great economic expense
A lack of suitable sheep breed that is economically viable from a feeding and management perspective the GCC currently imports circa 3 billion USD of lamb on an annual basis and is the largest per capita consumer of lamb in the world.
