About our Lamb
Starting out with Merino/ Poll Dorset crossbred house-flock, we introduced a purebred Dorper ram and some Dorper cross ewes. Our aim is to have a flock of predominantly Dorper sheep lambing throughout the year.
We selected the Dorper breed because of its superior meat qualities (lean, muscular and fine grained) and low maintenance management (no mulesing, shearing, crutching, fly strike but having good parasite resistance).
Our sheep are handled using the Low Stress Stock handling principles to ensure a calm interaction between animal and human. They are quiet and happy, spending more time grazing, lazing and chewing their cud rather than stressing about us being around.
Our sheep are grazed predominantly native pasture using strategic rotational grazing management to increase soil health and biodiversity. We fertilise our paddocks with on farm produced liquid and solid worm castings and planted shelterbelts of native vegetation.
Our lambs, once they are weaned, go into their own rotational grazing system on improved pasture to grow out to 40 to 50 kg ready for market.
