Merlin Dorpers Was Established In 2007

Our desire to have a low maintenance highly productive meat producing animal led us to the Dorper and they have met and exceeded all our requirements. We commenced operations with the stud ram Kaya “Big Al” (An exceptional ram whose progeny has been used by studs to improve their flocks) and some Winrae ewes. We quickly felt we were on the right track and decided to grow our breeding stock and introduce new blood lines. Currently running 300 stud ewes and selling their progeny at our on Farm sale Valentine’s Day every year.

Our focus has been on providing rams showing good length, depth and muscle without going to extremes providing our customers with rams that can go the distance.

To maintain high standards and quality we have had inspections every year from Australian and African inspectors to make sure we meet the Dorper breed standard.

Merlin Dorpers stud is on 1800 acres at ‘Merlin’ Attunga, NSW (28 km north-west of Tamworth in Northern NSW). We currently run a flock of stud dorpers as well as a flock 2000 commercial ewes.
