Welcome to Yarrabee Dorper Sheep Stud

Situated on the Darling Downs, close to Toowoomba and Brisbane

Yarrabee Dorper Stud is located in the Goombungee district (35 km northwest of Toowoomba) on the Darling Downs, South East Queensland (175 km from Brisbane Airport). Visitors are always welcome to Yarrabee, which is readily accessible from both the Warrego (30 km) and New England Highways (18 km).

The stud prides itself on the natural breeding
of structurally sound sheep
reared under paddock conditions

The Dorper sheep stud (number D781) has been operating since 2011, and comprises a flock of very easy care, productive sheep. If the name Yarrabee seems familiar, the Boer Goat stud has been operating since early 1998, breeding quality Boer goats from a range of genetics.

Dorper Sheep for Sale - Stud Stock and Commercial

The stud usually offers a variety of livestock categories to satisfy all customers. Currently these stock are available:

  • Dorper Rams  - 6 commercial and stud rams, born in July and August 2016
  • Dorper Ewes - 12 ewes - majority can be registered, are well grown, and are proving to be excellent shedders, born July and August 2016 (full sisters lambed successfully at 14 months - brilliant mothers).
  • Dorper Ewes - several 2015 born ewes, most recently weaned their first lambs, others in lamb, Yarrabee bred, another owner looking at selling due to their local wild dog problem making it too difficult to operate the enterprise.
  • Dorper Ewes - several older ewes that have reared lambs successfully available from December.
  • 2017 born stock available from February 2018 - superb young ewes and rams growing up now.

Stud Dorper breeders and export buyers can purchase quality, registered stud stock, suitable for showing and further stud breeding. Commercial meat sheep producers can select from registered and unregistered fullblood sires, ideal for running in extensive situations with commercial ewes.
