Production Oriented, Quality Assured
Our Dorpers started in 2000 and are now a quality fullblood and purebred breeding flock. Foundation bloodlines were introduced from Riverwood Farms, Ohio; Crane Creek Dorpers, Iowa; and E Zee Acres, Alberta, Canada.
The Dorper breed was developed in South Africa in the 1930-40s by crossing the Blackhead Persian, a fat-tailed desert sheep, with the Horned Dorset, a wooled breed. They were then introduced into the United States in the mid 1990s. Blackhead Persians are known for their hardiness, thriftiness, adaptability, pigmentation, hair covering, and remarkable fertility. The traits of Horned Dorsets include out of season breeding and fast-growing, heavily-muscled lambs which yield very satisfactory economic returns under a variety of environmental conditions. For more information on the Dorper Breed, visit www.Dorper.org.
Our flock is a Pennsylvania voluntary Scrapie Free flock since 2006. In addition, a strong selection has been placed in our flock to develop the "R" factor at Codon 171. This is a goal we are now achieving without sacrificing quality.
While many of our rams and ewes are sold direct to producers, we also market our genetics through the Penn State Livestock Evaluation Center in August of each year.
