Dorper Sheep – Meat Sheep for the Modern Producer.

Hardy and Adaptable - Dorper Sheep are highly adaptable and do well in harsh, extensive conditions as well as in more intensive operations.

Excellent Maternal Qualities - Ewes are excellent mothers and heavy milkers. Lambs are vigorous and have high survivability.

Long Breeding Season - Dorpers are non-seasonal or have an extended breeding season. They can easily be managed to produce three lamb crops in two years.

Reproductive Efficiency-Dorpers are very fertile and prolific. Lambing rates of 180% can be achieved per lambing. They are early maturing and will produce a lamb crop at one year of age.

Pre-potency - Dorper sheep cross well with commercial ewes of other breeds and as terminal sires produce fast growing, muscular lambs.

Non-Selective Grazers - Dorpers are excellent converters of a wide range of forage types and they excel in grazing or weed control operations.

Heat and Insect Tolerant - Because of their Blackhead Persian origin, Dorpers have natural tolerance to high temperatures and heavy insect populations. They are productive in areas where other breeds barely survive.
