Le Roc Dormers’ 1st Production Sale

October 22 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

Le Roc Dormers will host its first production sale on the farm Eastry in Tweespruit on 22 October at 11am.

Le Roc Dormers breeds animals for adaptability, hardiness and fertility. Sheep are hand-selected based on their conformation and the way in which they carry themselves, as sheep with good mobility can walk long distances to graze.

As the Dormer is mainly produced for mutton, Le Roc strives to breed Dormers that are stocky. Le Roc’s principle aim is to breed early-maturing sheep to ensure better growth and a more profitable meat yield, and to produce sheep that live up to the stud’s motto, ‘Fertility builds your factory’.

The following will be on offer during the production sale: functional and productive breeding ewes, including:

  • 60 commercial ewes with lambs (with an average weight of 28kg);
  • 50 in-lamb ewes;
  • 50 in-lamb young ewes;
  • 100 young open ewes;
  • 180 store lambs.

There are also 11 rams, of which four are stud rams, on offer.
