    Dorper is one of the only sheep breeds that is polyoestrus. This means that they are capable of producing young 3 times in 2 years, as opposed to most other breeds that will produce young once per year, usually in late winter/early spring.
    Prone to producing twins, they are very protective mothers and if in good condition, they will successfully rear twins with ease. Triplets have also been born from Dorpers, but due to having only two teats, it is rare that the third triplet will thrive.
