The Australian White was developed through the combination of four existing breeds of sheep, being Poll Dorset, Texel, Vanrouey and White Dorper, with their features making them ideal for Australian conditions.

With the use of Embryo Transfer and Artificial Insemination the Australian White breed has quickly developed to meet all of the breeds original objectives. This has resulted in a shedding-haired type breed that suits both Australian meat processors and lamb producers.
