Welcome to Barclays Kelpies

The Barclays Kelpies Stud is run by Jamie Barclay who owns and operates Barclay Livestock Management Services and has been breeding Working Kelpies for the last 20 years. Barclays working kelpies are an integral part of our mobile sheep dipping operation.

Our Kelpies are bred to be true all-rounders suitable for all types of stock work. The temperament must be right and we guarantee our Kelpie dogs have great natures for the farm owner or family.

Barclays Kelpies incorporates the Midgbar bloodline which was the name given to Jamie's stud originally and was only changed in 2007 to Barclays Kelpies.

Signature sires such as Midgbar Harry and Midgbar Moss have progeny at the stud as well as seamen stored as part of our AI program to preserve the bloodline.

Barclays Kelpies get the job done

At Barclays Kelpies our main objective is to breed a Kelpie dog that will get the job done. They have to be smart, strong, big types, forceful in the yards when needed but reliable enough to know you are not going to lose money due to stock being stressed by an overexcited working Kelpie dog.

We are located in the Central West of NSW as a farm contracting business, Barclay Livestock Management Services. We operate a mobile cage dipping service that sees on average 500,000 sheep dipped each year. We currently have at stud 7 Dams with 5 up and coming Dams and 6 Sires with 4 up and coming. All brood bitches work as well as having exceptional bloodlines. Throughout the year Kelpie puppies are available for sale and it is recommended you book your Kelpie pup early as they are usually sold before they are born.

A Barclays Kelpie to meet your needs

We have a clear vision of where we want our working Kelpie dog bloodlines to be and as a result Jamie thoroughly researches the genetics of the Kelpies and has professionally cryogenically frozen stores of stud semen to ensure the integrity of the breed is preserved. Started and Broken in Kelpie dogs are also available and we look forward to finding a suitable Kelpie to meet your needs.

Barclays Kelpies training days

Our training days are very popular and are a great opportunity to get together with other Kelpie owners and learn some new and old techniques. These days are held a few times a year for a small group only so keep and eye out on this page for upcoming dates and book in early. Alternatively with every Kelpie puppy or Kelpie purchased, Jamie will offer you a full day's training and assessment session with you and your Kelpie dog.

Barclays Kelpies is a fully registered breeder with the Working Kelpie Council of Australia and abides by the guarantees offered by the Council.
