The Gunn Family
Angus, Sam, Sue and Jim Gunn


The Gunn family have been running Sevenbardot since Margaret Gunn started the Poll Hereford stud in 1960. Today, the stud is run by Jim Sue and Angus Gunn at Wigelmar, located in Bylong, NSW and Sam, Amy and Max Gunn who live at "sunset", Condobolin New South Wales. Our family carries on the tradition started here way back more than 55 years ago. 

Sevenbardot’s family run operation includes our Wigelmar 3,000 acre property in Bylong, which we’ve called home since 2015. We also own Sunset Station, about an hour northwest of Condobolin. That’s where Sam Gunn and his wife Amy and son Max live and raise poll Hereford cattle, Dorper sheep and harvest wild goats.
