Merlo Downs Stud proprietors, Jeff and Lea Marlow, have recently re-located their breeding operations to Minden, in South East Queensland, 56 km west of Brisbane, and 32km east of Gatton, with the sale of their property at Rockhampton in August this year.

There are ample facilities available to accommodate broodmares visiting the stallions.  

Louise Cosgrove at EEVS is an experienced and dedicated Reproductive Veterinarian, and achieved fantastic positive pregnancy results last season with both stallions.
