    Dorper Lamb

    The Dorper is a South African breed of domestic sheep developed by crossing Dorset Horn and the Blackhead Persian sheep.

    The resulting Dorper breed is non-wool producing and adaptable animal, able to flourish in even arid conditions and graze on a variety of plants. As Dorper Lambs are bred for meat production, they tend to be more heavily muscled than wool breeds. This means that, pound per pound of carcass weight, you get more meat on the Dorper than the regular wool breeds.

    The Dorper lamb meat has an even distribution of fat, resulting in fine, succulent texture. It has a very mild aroma and a delicate taste, which makes it an ideal flavor receptor, and can be prepared and seasoned in many ways for all types of cuisines.
