Horned Dorset Sheep

Horned Dorsets originated in England and Wales and have been an identifiable breed since the 16th century. Imported into Canada during the 19th century they were, for many years, one of the cornerstones of the sheep industry. The Canadian Horned Dorset type owes more to the older style British animal. It is a lower set animal and smaller than its American or Australian counterpart. After the introduction of the Polled Dorset in the 1950's, many breeders switched over and the Horned Dorset declined in numbers.

La Dorset con cuernos se originó en Inglaterra y Gales y ha sido una raza identificable desde el siglo XVI. Importada a Canadá durante el siglo XIX, fue durante muchos años, una de las piedras angulares de la industria ovina. La Dorset con cuernos Canadiense posee más del animal Británico tipo antiguo. Es un animal bajo y más pequeño que sus contrapartes Americanos o Australianos. Después de la introducción del Dorset acorne en la década de 1950, muchos criadores cambiaron y la Dorset con cuernos declinó en número.

Polled Dorset

 

Dorset Sheep polled

The Polled Dorset originated from a mutation of the Horned Dorset which occurred at North Carolina State University in the early 1950's. They were accepted into the US breed registry in 1956 and since that time have spread into Canada and become a major contributor to the commercial lamb industry. Dorset ewes are relatively prolific, good mothers and breed out of season. The breed adapts well to confinement and is readily used in accelerated crossbreeding programs. As they respond well to confinement, they do well under feedlot conditions and on small holdings with intensive management.

 

La Dorset acorne se originó de una mutación de la Dorset con cuernos que ocurrió en la Universidad del estado de Carolina del Norte a inicios de la década de 1950. Fue aceptada en el registro racial de los EUA en 1956 y desde ahí se ha difundido a Canadá y vuelto un contribuidor mayor para la industria comercial del cordero.

Las hembras Dorset son relativamente prolíficas, buenas madres y se reproducen fuera de estación. La raza se adapta bien al confinamiento y es fácilmente usada en programas de cruzamiento acelerado. Ya que responden bien al confinamiento, producen bien en condiciones de estabulación y en pequeñas extensiones con manejo intensivo.

 

General Appearance - Medium sized sheep; good body length & muscle conformation. Head is well covered with wool on the poll & under jaws. Open, smooth face & muszzle is moderatley broad, medium length; pink nose.
