ABOUT DORPERS

A cross between a Dorset Horn sheep from Britain and a Persian sheep form Iran.

The Dorper is a fast growing meat producing sheep. It was bred by crossing a Dorset Horn sheep from Britain with a Persian sheep form Iran in the 1930's. The breed was introduced to Australia in 1996 and is now the country's fastest growing sheep breed.

Dorpers are shedders, and they're attractive to local producers because shearing and muelsing requirements are minimal. They are non-selective grazers and adapt well to Australian conditions. Dorper Lambs grow rapidly thanks to the abundant supply of milk from their mothers and their ability to graze at an early age. The lambs show good maturity at 4-6 months of age, ensuring tenderness and a superior flavour.

Inherent characteristics of the breed such as rapid growth rate, good muscling and an ability to produce low fat scores makes for a great-tasting prime lamb.
