WELCOME TO YANTA

At Yanta we run a Poll Merino Sheep Stud and a White Suffolk Sheep Stud. Every year we conduct a ram auction where the best of both breeds are sold on the same day through a ring selling system. Surplus rams are available for purchase after the sale. We are located in the hills close to the coast near Tumby Bay, a locality that enjoys a very moderate climate with lovely views.
