The Stud Merino Breeders of WA run the MURESK Sire Evaluation site, in partnership with the Muresk Institute. The site commenced in 2016.

Location

Muresk is an 898ha property owned and managed by the Department of Training and Workforce Development located in the Avon Valley region, 100 kilometres north east of Perth. The climate is described as Mediterranean with an average annual rainfall of 400-420mm. Muresk is a mixed enterprise farm that includes a 300ha winter cropping program, a housed piggery, self-replacing Dohne and Merino flocks and a self-replacing herd of Murray Grey cattle.
