Judge Justin Kirkby of Amarula Dorpers at Gravesend felt the sheep were of an outstanding quality.

"It was really pleasing, all of the sheep deserved their placings and were a great representation of the breed," he said.

Dubbo College's Delroy campus teacher David Piper attended with 27 students from their agricultural program who assisted studs in both the show and sale.

"We would like to thank the Dorper society for the opportunity that they give the kids," he said. 

Newly elected president Sharon Hibbons thought it was a good show.

"The sheep were all of a high quality and deserved the ribbons they got," she said.

"The students that helped here are absolutely outstanding. We would like to sponsor them at the two-day junior school held at Amarula Dorpers in September to thank them for all the work they do."
