Kaya Dorper Pty Ltd.
Kaya Dorper was established in 1999 with the importation of embryos from South Africa. All genetics at Kaya are direct imports from South Africa.
Kaya Dorper is a specialised Dorper producing unit. We only breed with purebred animals and due to the problems associated with space and management we do not “breed up”.
Kaya Farms is located in the Upper Great Southern region of Western Australia and is in a 16 inch winter rainfall environment. This results in the sheep being on green feed from May through to October and for the remainder of the season they are on dry paddock feed or hay and silage.
Due to the need for numbers, sheep are lambed all year. We have batch matings every 3 months that result in animals being bred in all seasons, both naturally and by embryo collection.
At the 1st January 2015, the flock consisted of 400 Dorper ewes, and 450 White Dorper ewes.
Kaya Dorper aims to produce 1500-2000 lambs per year (50% Dorper / 50% White Dorper) by embryo collection and natural breeding.
