The Cherry Mountain Dorpers Philosophy

Since 2004 - Raising Breeder Stock Thru Ram Genetics

Since its inception, the focus of Cherry Mountain Dorpers has been to produce sheep that will raise superior offspring. Dorpers were developed to be a hardy, easy keeping breed of sheep that can endure various climates and range conditions.  Although many of Cherry Mountain Dorpers lambs have done very well in show rings, the main focus of the ranch is to produce and sell sheep that align with breed standards. Cherry Mountain Dorpers maintains such focus by managing a breeding program that produces sheep that are hardy, productive, good mothers, and appealing to the eye.

 

Cherry Mountain Dorpers has always believed in quality over quantity so they have kept sheep numbers at a manageable rate in order to ensure a high quality product.

Why We Choose the Dorper Breed

Quick Reproduction
Ewes Breed Year Round

Under good forage conditions and with good management the Dorper ewe can lamb three times in two years. A lambing percentage of 150% can be reached under good conditions while in exceptional cases even 180% can be attained.

A Hardy Breed
Dorpers are a Non-Selective Feeder

The Dorper is a nonselective feeder, browsing like a goat and grazing like a sheep. The maternal influence is a desert sheep that has thrived and reproduced under harsh conditions for centuries.

Higher Yields
Higher Yields of a Lean Quality Meat

With decent conditions these Dorper lambs grow quickly, producing a muscular, lean carcass in 12-14 weeks. Profitability can return to an operation that concentrates its efforts where the money is… maximum pounds of lamb in a minimum amount of time.
