Global Dorpers continues
Global Dorpers has ended a wonderful 8 year partnership with Leon van Niekerk from South Africa in 2017. Global Dorpers will continue to operate with Dr Kenoes van Lill and Cecile van Lill as owners. The focus in 2018 is on rebuilding the stud as well as producing fat lambs for the meat market. Our embryo and semen sales are continuing and our rams and ewes will be at the NSW and Nationals sales in 2019.
Stud Closure Sale
The time has come for the Global Dorper team to retire. Our dispersal sale will be on Friday 18th August 2017. We will sell approximately 300 ewes and young ewes as well as 50 rams and young rams. Buyers will be able to interface with AuctionPlus (live video and audio streaming) which mean that international buyers can bid on ewes and have them flushed for embryos in Australia. The sale will include all our champion ewes, Lady Di, Liesbet, Angela, Pipa and Natalie. Burger will be on sale as well as ram progeny of Prince William. In 6 years of showing animals Global was crowned the most successful stud in Australia at three occasions and the most successful exhibitor at three NSW Dorper shows. Global has established three bloodlines from the original South African genetics that complement each other. Line 1 the Benchmark/Man of War/Burger line brought hardiness and big hind quarters; the Black Cat (Mickey Phillips)/Bradman/Kuiper/Prince William line added strong heads and lots of muscle; the Diesel/Gilchrist/ Pollock/ Digby line brought finesse and correctness. The sale is an opportunity for Australian breeders to introduce new bloodlines into their studs through female animals. International buyers can buy ewes to flush embryos and sell the ewes after the embryo programme.
Show success for Global
Grand Champion ewe and Reserve Champion ram for Global: Natalie, a young ewe from Global Dorpers was crowned Grand Champion ewe at the Eastern Region Show (March 2017) in Dubbo. Natalie is the progeny of Larkham, who was the NSW Junior Champion Ram in 2015. The Reserve Champion ram was Joost, also a son of Larkham. Global will not show any animals for the rest of the year; we will focus on our dispersal sale in August.
Winners in the Ring and on the Hook May 2016
At the NSW Dorper Sheep Championship in Dubbo, 29 April- 1 May ’16, GLOBAL DORPERS won the Trophy for the Most Successful Dorper Breeder. Global took out the Grand Champion ewe, the Junior Champion and Senior Champion ewe. In the ram classes Global won the Reserve Grand Champion ram and the Senior Champion ram. To top this off Global, in collaboration with David and Tracey Maxwell, commercial Dorper farmers from Wee Waa, was the winner of the sucker lamb class in the HOOF AND HOOK competition. A carcass from the Global pen was the Reserve Champion of all the breeds in the competition.
Global dominated the ewe classes with 4 first places and 3 second places.
Burger, winner of the 4-tooth class, sired three of the class winners. The progeny of Kuiper, Hooper and Larkham also produced class winners. A Kuiper son was the Senior Champion ram. For more information on our bloodlines and pedigrees please click on our ram pedigrees.
Grand Champion Dorper ewe and Reserve Senior Champion ram for Global at the Dubbo Annual Sheep Show 2015
Lady Di, a Gilchrist daughter, was the Grand Champion ewe at the NSW Dorper show, while Larkham, also from the Gilchrist line, was the Junior Champion ram. Burger, was the Reserve Senior Champion ram. Global’s young ewes took 2 first places and one second place. All three our bloodlines, the Gilchrist line, the Man of War line and the Bradman line produced winners. The young ewes were all from the Bradman line. GLOBAL DORPERS was the most successful Dorper stud at the NSW Dorper Show 2015.
Global has exported semen and embryos to Canada, the European Union, the USA and New Zealand the past year. We trust that the Dorper breed will go from strength to strength in these countries.
