The Dorset Cross

The benefits of a Dorset Cross

Better return on investment

Dorset Cross lambs have the ability to reach optimum weights between 12 to 16 weeks with no supplementary feeding and meets market specification on confirmation and fat cover with ease.

“Using the rams we produce, we put back over some of the commercial flock. This helps finish lambs quicker and hit better carcass grades.”

Joe Baker, Lanamuir Flock

Great mothering ability

But it is not only the Dorset’s ability to rear prime lambs – the maternal traits of the breed are unrivalled with their unique out-of-season breeding capabilities being guaranteed in all first crosses. This allows any farmer to fit lamb production around other elements of the farming business and maximise profits.
