Bradan Dorpers was founded in 2007. Our property is situated on the Northern Plains of Victoria in the town of Wyuna. We are located on the Murray Valley Highway about 25km east of Echuca, Victoria, Australia.
We are active members of the Dorper Sheep Society of Australia Inc.
Our foundation flock is from direct Dell bloodlines. We purchased ewes from Dell Dorpers, some were embryo lambs from John Dell- South Africa. We undertook an initial Artificial Insemination (AI) program in April 2008, using semen from the leading Dell Dorper sires.
This resulted in ewes that are now well established maternal lines within our stud.
We strongly believe in breeding with the best genetics available so as to receive the best results possible in our flock. Our goals have always been to produce top quality Dorpers which are highly productive, true to type, maternal ewes and hard working, highly fertile, heavily muscled rams.
All under paddock conditions.
Stud owners Brad and Danielle have both successfully passed 4 Senior Dorper Courses. We highly recommend all potential or existing Dorper breeders take part in at least a Junior course. We promise you will learn something new.
