Wendy & David Dennis run a Polwarth sheep and wool growing enterprise on their historic Birregurra property 'Tarndwarncoort', established 1840, in Western Victoria. Polwarth sheep were developed by Richard Dennis at Tarndwarncoort in 1880, by crossing Saxon Merino sheep from Tasmania with Victorian Lincoln sheep. This progeny was then joined back to the Merino and bred to a fixed type more suited to the Otways environment. The new breed was named after the local electorate of Polwarth and is Australia's first unique breed of sheep.
