Dorset Championships

The Australian Dorset Championships Show & Sale

September 16 @ 10:00 am – September 18 @ 5:00 pm

The Poll Dorset is a short wool, meat producing sheep and is Australia’s No.1 terminal sire in the prime lamb industry. Poll Dorsets sire more lambs annually than any other breed.

The Poll Dorset breed is known for its rapid growth rates and early maturity, shapely carcase with ideal fat coverage, and high lean meat yield. These industry sought after characteristics are ideal for meat production, and make Poll Dorset the perfect choice for prime lamb production.
