Next month a friend and I are headed to south Texas to buy a few Dorper ewes. Then he is going to get a Dorper buck from a ranch in Oklahoma. Right now I have Barbado sheep and I love them. I want the Dorpers just to have something else. When I turn my Barbado Rams in with my Barbado ewes I will put the Dorper ewes in the ram pasture to prevent breeding. I am going to use my friends Dorper buck when I need to breed my ewes. Does anyone raise Dorpers? Is there anything special that I need to know about this breed? I have spent countless hours on the internet researching the Dorper breed. And I cannot wait to get my new ewes home.
