Mount Linton is one of the iconic New Zealand stations. It is also one of the largest privately owned stations in New Zealand and its size (13,365ha) means its biggest asset is people, both current and past. They have made an enormous contribution and all have been privileged to be part of its development.
The key advantages of Mount Linton is its size and determination to be a leader in genetics.Recording the Angus herd began in 1991, followed by the Texel flock in 1995, and more recently the Suftex.
The genetic trend graphs show tremendous improvement and sire performance is backed up by the achievements of the commercial sheep and cattle operations run on the Station.
Mount Linton’s biggest challenge is the Southland climate and we are focsed on producing genetics that survive and thrive in a harsh environment, as well as producing a quality product for the end consumer.
