2015 Canterbury Regional Supreme Winners

Omarama high-country farmers Richard and Annabelle Subtil run 12000ha Omarama Station – a family-owned property previously farmed by Annabelle’s parents Dick and Beth Wardell.

Situated south of Omarama Village, the Mackenzie Country property winters 23,000 stock units, including 7500 Merino ewes and 310 Angus-Hereford cows.   The diverse operation grows a range of crops, produces high quality wool and finishes around 10,000 lambs and 700 steers and heifers annually. Additional income is produced by a homestay and hydro electricity generation.
