The History of African White Dorper Stud

Dermosparaxis free and Brucellosis accredited stud and Ovine Johnes Disease score of 4 ABC points, which is a low prevalence area and we are in the Riverina Bio Security Plan.

Established in 2005 by Moozie and Jean van Niekerk in partnership with Susan & Ian Law of Matchless Stud.  The van Niekerks took over sole ownership of African White Dorpers in 2011.

African White Dorper genetics are originally based upon genetic material imported from South Africa. Genetics from some of the best studs in South Africa were used. Such as Kasteel, Tien Jordaan, JLK Kotze, J Visser, Leon Snyman, Dries Wiese, Gert Lotter, Malan, Tony Cahi and also genetics from the van Niekerk's Brakfontein Stud in South Africa.

Over recent years, top sires from Matchless and now Dumisa & African White Dorpers have been used in the stud.  This includes the African White Dorper Ram named “SUPER SIRE” African D555 who is the core of the stud and has made his mark as being one of the best breeding stud sires in Australia.  He is a champion of champions which includes, African G041 Res Senior Champion White Dorper Ram ASWS 2012 and sold for $11 000, Dumisa Ranger 130055 Junior & Grand Champion White Dorper at ASWS 2014, Dumisa 130353 Junior Champion White Dorper Ewe Dubbo National Show 2014.  D555 was the grandsire of  the top priced White Dorper ram at our 3rd On Property Sale 2014 & the grandsire of  Dumisa Kluger 120441 the Senior & Grand Champion White Dorper Ram and Supreme Exhibit at Dubbo Nationals 2014.   Between African & Dumisa White Dorpers we are currently running 250 high quality great shedding White Dorper ewes.  Dumisa & African White Dorpers is not all about winning shows, we breed rams for stud and mostly commercial operations with good structure, great meat qualities and for tough and good conditions.
