The Dorper have the potential to be the leading sheep breed within the UK
The Dorper and White Dorper is a relatively new breed in Great Britain.
Originally developed in South Africa it has very quickly spread to all continents making their mark in the USA, South America, New Zealand, Australia, Europe and Asia.
Every spring they shed their wool so require little maintenance for flystrike, they rarely become cast (stuck on their backs).
