The Seis family is one of the early pioneering families in the Gulgong district of New South Wales Australia, and has been grazing merino sheep and growing cereal crops in the area since the 1860s.
Colin Seis and his son Nicholas own the 2000 acre property “Winona”, which runs 4000, merino sheep that are managed using holistic planned grazing. Cattle are also run on the property when seasons allow.
The property is managed using methods that continually regenerate its grassland, soil,and farm ecosystem. This dramatically reduces farm inputs,while producing up to 20,000 kg of wool and selling 1500 sheep, and cereal grain annually.
Five hundred acres of oats, wheat and /or cereal rye are sown annually using the ‘pasture cropping’ technique that Colin developed over 25 years ago. Other enterprises on Winona consist of a merino ram breeding operation, and native grass seed, which is harvested from the property’s native grassland. Winona also runs one of the largest kelpie, working dog, studs in the world and sells dogs and pups to many countries like North and South America, Europe and Scandinavia as well as all states of Australia.
