It is of utmost importance to us that each animal meets the Breed Standard of Excellence –

The Dorper Stud was started from using Kaya ewes, purchased from Western Australia, followed by Kaya and Burrawang sires.
The White Dorper Stud was started from purchasing ewes from Terraweena and Saltbush Studs from South Australia.
Over the years, we’ve introduced African Kaya sires – and since 2016 we’ve been using Burrawang & Dust’n Rain sires.
