The grand ram was drawn from the April-May 2014-drop class; the reserve from the June-July 2014-drop class; the grand ewe from the April-May 2014-drop class, and the reserve from two-four-tooth class.

Judge, Andrea van Neikerk, Dell Dorpers, Moama, described the sheep paraded before her as "magnificent" examples of the breed, in particular the ewes.

"They are well balanced, feminine and just perfect," she said.

"The grand ram was outstanding with great meat through the hindquarter, excellent on his legs - a great sire for the future."

Nomuula stud principal, Cherilyn Lowe, said both her top ram and ewe were the result of an artificial insemination program using Dell Dorper sire, D555, while her reserve ewe was sired by Nomuula Gere, a ram she sold at the National Dorper and White Dorper Show and Sale at Dubbo in 2013 for $1000.

The reserve ram was sired by one of her first sires, African Rocket, an unshown ram which Ms Lowe bought for $9000 at the national.
