Mr. Lategan opens with the 65 year history of how this unique breed of sheep came to be! He then outlines breeding philosophy, nutritional requirements and a business plan.
For most Dorper enthusiasts, the best part is Mr. Lategan’s in-depth description of what makes a Dorper a superior meat producer. Known for their short legs and long, deeply muscled bodies, Dorpers are AKA the “Angus” of the sheep world.
There are pages and pages of photos and illustrations of what a Dorper should and should not look like. This comprehensive handbook is a must-have for every serious Dorper breeder or aficionado!
