Breed History

The Dohne Merino is a synthetic dual purpouse sheep developed by South African Department of Agriculture by using German Mutton Merino sires over Peppin-style Merino ewes. The progeny were interbred and selected for high fertility, rapid lamb growth rate and fine Merino wool under commercial range land conditions.
