About Us

Athlone Poll Dorset Stud was established by Henry and Karen Cameron in 1990. Starting with 60 ewes, the stud was founded on Englewood and Gloroy genetics. Since then the stud has grown to having over 1000 breeding Poll Dorset ewes and 22 sires, producing between 350 and 400 rams each year.

Henry and Karen’s son Damian and his wife Lucy have now also joined the running of the stud. In 2016 the Camerons added Southdowns to the breeding program. They strongly believe that the unique traits of the Southdowns give them an important niche in the production of modern commercial sheep flocks.

Athlone also produces prime lambs and Angus cattle.
