established in 1979

Springwaters Poll Dorset Stud is owned and operated by Dennis, Jo-Anne and Dane Rowley. The stud was founded in NSW's high country in 1979  at the family property "Springwood". Springwaters has grown into one of Australia's premier Poll Dorset studs recognised for a focus on heavy muscling and early maturity.


early days

In the initial year of foundation, the stud was fortunate to purchase virtually the entire flock of Alan Preston, the “Ino” Poll Dorset stud, which was located at Ando near Bombala in New South Wales. This stud had been founded on top bloodlines sourced from the dispersal sales of the noted “Lindsbury”, “Marlybone” and  “Leighmore Stud”.
