Dorsets are dual-purpose wool and meat breed. Their fleece is white, strong, and free of dark fiber; it measures in the 26 to 32 micron range. Dorset sheep produce between five and nine pounds of medium grade wool per year.
Dorsets are white with open faces and long bodies. Ewes weigh 150–200 lbs. and rams weigh 225–275 lbs. Ewes are great milk producers, easily able to raise their own lambs and also be used for dairy. Ewes’ horns are light, curving forward neatly; rams’ horns are heavy and spiral out as well as curving forward. Dorset sheep are globally distributed and found in two varieties, Horned and Polled.
The most important attribute of the Dorset is its extended breeding season, also called nonseasonal or aseasonal breeding. This characteristic is not found in any other British breed.
