We typically run 50 - 70 ewes, most of them White Dorper. We have fullblood ewes, purebred ewes, and a few commercial crossbred hair ewes. Since Dorpers are hair sheep, they shed, so they do not need to be sheared. We select for good feet and parasite resistance. Good mothering instincts and ease of lambing allow our Dorper ewes to lamb out in the fields no matter what the season. The White Dorper produce lambs that are small at birth, and grow fast. Dorper lamb meat is mild, and Dorper lambs can be slaughtered at larger sizes and still avoid tasting "muttony".

        We occasionally sell a few ewes and
       lambs to make room for new additions.
