Following the Dorper School at Burrawang West,the South African Inspector, Wicus Cronje, came to class our sheep. This was a very useful exercise, as it made us look objectively at our stud sheep with an independent expert, noting both the flocks strengths and weaknesses. We were very pleased with the outcome, we have a large number of Type 4 and 5 home bred sheep. This classing will enable us to refine our breeding by using the very best of our flock. This assists us to further improve the quality of our stud animals with each ensuing generation.
Tommorrow morning we are off to the National Dorper Show and Sale at Dubbo. Wednesday the ewes will be judged, Thursday the rams, and on Friday the Sale. The Eastern Region AGM will be held on Wednesday night. Looking forward to catching up with the other breeders and looking at lots of sheep. We thought about showing at Dubbo but we ran out of energy with so much else on at this time.
