The Northern Dorset Breeders Club

A group of Dorset breeders throughout the North of England and Scotland got together in the summer of 2011 and formed the Northern Dorset Breeders Club.

Aims & aspirations of the club:

  • Promote the Dorset breed throughout the North of England and Scotland
  • Support and encourage fellow breeders through sharing knowledge and skills
  • Help breeders new to sheep keeping or the breed to establish and manage their flocks
  • Gain more Dorset classes at agricultural shows and support them
  • Encourage members to enter Any other Breed Classes at shows which do not hold classes specific to our breed
  • Hold an annual club sale (2017 Gisburn Auction, Saturday 12th August) which is open to all dorset breeders to sell and to buy stock
  • Hold social events such as a club dinner, farm walks, demonstrations etc.
  • Encourage the inclusion of All Dorset Breeders resident in our Area
  • Promote Poll Dorset & Dorset Horn Sheep at as many events and places as possible within and throughout our region
