Mt Linton Station
 

Mount Linton Station is one of New Zealand's largest privately owned pastoral agricultural businesses.

The original property was purchased in 1903 by WJA McGregor, grandfather of the present Managing Director,
Alastair McGregor.

At that time the run was 60,000 acres and was reduced to 30,000 acres at the end of WW1.

Mount Linton's activities are vertically integrated from genetics through to production and marketing. The main income base is sheep, lambs being the major earner.

Romney is the predomiant breed, 40,000 ewes, with a Romney and Texel flock of 20,000 ewes. 1,900 Angus cows supply steers to the Five Star Beef feedlot and bulls are also sold.

The Station has a well balanced land base from breeding to finishing properties including leased land in Canterbury. A total of 100,000 stock units are farmed by the company.

Over the years international visitors have been hosted at Mount Linton. The tradition of hospitality continues with horse trekking, hunting and endurance riding, shooting, car rallies, dog trials, school parties, agricultural students, tour parties and field days.
