.   We get several enquires for ewes that we might have for sale. We sell an annual draft of older ewes that we try to get inspected by the breed inspector. He will assess them into two grades stud and commercial. Both grades can be registered with the Dorper society. Any that do not pass are culled to the works. The inspected ewes that pass are sold at the Taranaki ewe fair in the third week of January 2022.


White Dorpers are the best breed for farming through droughts. Etiwanda stud in western NSW had just 170 mls for the whole of 2019. They weaned their lambs at four months. They averaged 36kg  with no supplements.
