During the s, interest in Merino sheep increased. Riley 'Raby' for importing the most Saxons; W. Riley also imported cashmere goats into Australia. Two of Eliza Furlong 's sometimes spelt Forlong or Forlonge children had died from consumption , and she was determined to protect her surviving two sons by living in a warm climate and finding them outdoor occupations.
Her husband John, a Scottish businessman, had noticed wool from the Electorate of Saxony sold for much higher prices than wools from NSW. The family decided on sheep farming in Australia for their new business. Her sons, Andrew and William, studied sheep breeding and wool classing.
The selected sheep were driven herded to Hamburg and shipped to Hull. Thence, Eliza and her two sons walked them to Scotland for shipment to Australia. In Scotland, the new Australia Company, which was established in Britain, bought the first shipment, so Eliza repeated the journey twice more.
Each time, she gathered a flock for her sons. The sons were sent to NSW, but were persuaded to stop in Tasmania with the sheep, where Eliza and her husband joined them.
The Melbourne Age in described Eliza Furlong as someone who had 'notably stimulated and largely helped to mould the prosperity of an entire state and her name deserved to live for all time in our history' reprinted Wagga Wagga Daily Advertiser January 27, There were nearly 2 million sheep in Australia by , and by , Australia had won the wool trade war with Germany, mainly because of Germany's preoccupation with fineness. German manufacturers commenced importing Australian wool in To broaden the wool and give the animals some size, it is thought some English Leicester blood was introduced.
The resultant sheep were the foundation of many South Australian strong wool studs. His brother Alexander Borthwick Murray was also a highly successful breeder of Merino sheep. The Peppin brothers took a different approach to producing a hardier, longer-stapled, broader wool sheep. After purchasing Wanganella Station in the Riverina , they selected station-bred ewes that thrived under local conditions and purchased South Australian ewes bred at Cannally that were sired by an imported Rambouillet ram.
The Peppin brothers mainly used Saxon and Rambouillet rams, importing four Rambouillet rams in They ran some Lincoln ewes, but their introduction into the flock is undocumented. In the s, Vermont rams were imported into Australia from the U. Unfortunately, the fleece weight was high, but the clean yield low, the greater grease content increased the risk of fly strike , they had lower uneven wool quality, and lower lambing percentages.
Their introduction had a devastating effect on many famous fine-wool studs. In , while Australian studs were being devastated by the imported Vermont rams, several U. Merino breeders formed the Rambouillet Association to prevent the destruction of the Rambouillet line in the U. The federation drought — reduced the number of Australian sheep from 72 to 53 million and ended the Vermont era. The Peppin and Murray blood strain became dominant in the pastoral and wheat zones of Australia.
In Australia today, a few Saxon and other fine-wool, German bloodline, Merino studs exist in the high rainfall areas. In the drier areas, one finds the Collinsville 21 to 24 micron strains. The development of the Merino is entering a new phase: Artificial insemination and embryo transfer are being used to accelerate the spread of their genes. The result is a wide outcrossing between all major strains. In Australia, mulesing of Merino sheep is a common practice to reduce the incidence of flystrike.
It has been attacked by animal rights and animal welfare activists, with PETA running a campaign against the practice in
