Welcome to the site of the Cadell Border Leicester Stud
The Cadell Stud was established in 1946 by the late Ray Harper. It is now run by his son Barry and Grandson Robert.
Foundation stock was purchased from Kelso and Yarra studs and since then, selected sires from Kelso, The Oaks, Crymelon, Chandivan and in the later years, Raywill studs have been used. Sixty Six years on, many of the Crymelon blood lines still feature in Cadell Stud, particularly Romeo, which has proven to be a successful family line.
Today's stud is based on a breeding Flock of 700-800 adult ewes.
It has entered the National Johne's Program and has a present status of MN3V and in 2003 Cadell became part of the Lamplan testing scheme.
