The ADWDA Inc. is the Australian breed organisation for breeders of the Australian Dorper and White Dorper Sheep.

  • ADWDA aims to facilitate the incorporation of the Dorper and White Dorper breeds into the Australian sheep industry and will work in a cooperative manner with all sectors of the Australian Sheep and Sheep Meat Industry to achieve this aim.
  • In order to develop the Dorper and White Dorper breeds in Australia the ADWDA will focus upon education and the dissemination of information to both its members and the farming community.
  • Under the ADWDA stud book it will be necessary to register rams only, however the facility will be available for those wanting to register ewes should they wish to do so.
  • An Appendix flock system will be allowable for those wishing to upgrade to purebred Dorpers and White Dorpers.
