Who We Are

Sheepmatters is an independent sheep advisory business

Sheepmatters was founded by Anthony Shepherd in February 2006, and now has clients throughout Australia representing over 900,000 breeding ewes. We regard our clients as business partners.

Sheepmatters provides independent advice to both on-farm and off-farm clients; be it one-on-one or in grower groups (both private and industry). Sheepmatters is heavily involved in sheep industry programs.

Sheepmatters also runs a commercial farm ‘Jaffa’, at Cootamundra, NSW. ‘Jaffa’ is being used for research into commercial flocks to back up advice given to clients. This research includes repeatability in commercial sheep performance ($/ha) as well as trialling new technologies, products and services that benefit our clients.

‘Jaffa is also used as a centre for client field days and workshops held throughout the year.
