THE Dorper Sheep Society of Australia (DSSA) has moved to a calendar year beginning 2018 for reporting purposes, and while it’s left a six-month period for reporting, the society still achieved a lot in that time frame.
We firstly welcomed a new executive officer to the fold, Sara Winn, who has hit the ground running and is doing an awesome job.
The board continues to lead from the front and has taken a proactive stance in animal welfare, identifying that as a breed we can do a lot more in this space. The board has assessed its requirements and responsibilities in regards to animal welfare protocols and has implemented changes to by-laws which reflect the culture the board wishes to create. The board has also taken the step to actively encourage producers not to tail dock lambs as they feel it is not required to be done to the breed.
