About South Dorset SheepAbout South Dorset Sheep

South Dorset Sheep were developed in New Zealand in the 1950s. Originally called the South Dorset Down, it was produced by crossing Dorset Down rams with Southdown ewes. A typical ‘Downs’ sheep, it has a brown face, ears and legs, and a fine short fleece.

The South Dorset is a large, rapidly-maturing breed used mainly for export lambs, although the rams are used with ewes of other breeds as well to produce meat lambs.

South Dorset Sheep were officially renamed South Dorset in the 1980s.
