The Wiltipoll is a breed of sheep, developed in Australia from the Wiltshire Horn. It is a polled sheep primarily bred for prime lamb production and are dubbed ‘easy care.’ Its short white fleece is shed annually and is of no commercial value.
In 1974, Harry and Jill Powell of Munna Wiltipoll, Coolah, New South Wales, purchased their first Wiltshire Horn rams from Leo Harwood, Victoria and bred Wiltshire Horn sheep for twenty four years. In 1998, 6 of their poll ewes were joined to a Wiltipoll ram purchased from Annie Hughes of Kars Station. In 2000, they purchased another Wiltipoll ram from Annie Hughes and joined him to all their Wiltshire Horn ewes. Then two years later all the Wiltshire Horn ewes were sold to concentrate on their Wiltipoll flock. In 2005, 204 Wiltipoll ewes were joined to 4 Wiltipoll rams. Harry and Jill held their first On-Farm Sale of Wiltipoll Ewes and Rams in February 2006. They have always maintained a very strict culling process for sheep that did not shed properly and apply great emphasis on carcase weight.
