About Brocburn Dorpers

Brocburn Dorper Stud was established in 1999 with an embryo transfer programme, becoming the first Dorper stud in Tasmania and one of the first Dorper studs in Australia with stud number D037.

With the property situated in the North West of Tasmania, Brocburn Dorpers are run under open range conditions year round and subject to an annual 60ʺ (150cm) rainfall, with occasional winter snowfalls. Ewes must be able to raise a lamb unassisted to remain in the stud flock. 

Running fullblood South African genetics in a cold, high rainfall climate has meant selection for hardy, low maintenance breeding stock with particular emphasis on structural soundness and good feet.

Due to the ever present risk of introducing disease Brocburn run a closed flock with new genetics introduced through artificial insemination or through embryo transplant. Brocburn maintain the health status of their flock through Nationally recognised schemes such as the Ovine Brucellosis Accreditation Scheme and Sheep MAP and by using standard biosecurity measures.

New and improved genetics are regularly introduced into a portion of the flock using frozen semen based on genetics from prominent South African studs.  This has enabled Brocburn Dorper stud to maintain their place as suppliers of some of the best Dorper genetics available, producing a hardy, easy-care sheep that will perform as well in Tasmania’s wet and cold climate as they do elsewhere in Australia.
