Dorper Sheep

Dorper Sheep History

The Dorper is a breed of sheep that originated in the south of Africa in the 1940s, a product of cross-breeding between the Dorset Horn and Blackhead Persian breeds.


Dorper sheep are non-selective grazers, further expanding their adaptability to a variety of climates and environments.


Dorper reproduction is non-seasonal, the breed has a high lambing percentage, allowing them to produce 2.25 lambs annually.
