K Bar K Farm is a breeder of registered, production oriented Polled Dorset sheep (also often referred to as traditional, foundation, or old style) that strives to produce high-quality Dorset rams and ewes that maintain the breed characteristics of the true Dorset. 

 

Our emphases include:

*   Mothering and milking ability

*   Out of season breeding 

*   Acceleration 

*   Prolificacy 

*   Carcass/muscling traits, 

 

and, most importantly-

 

* The ability to perform in a low-input, forage-based system

We utilize cross-flock estimated breeding values (EBV) through the National Sheep Improvement Program (NSIP) and previously through Lambplan since 2000.

    Top 2 ranked rams for weaning weight  (WWT; 6 of the top 10 rams)

    Top ranked ram for post weaning weight (PWWT; 7 of the top 10 rams)

    Top 4 ranked rams for maternal weaning weight (MWWT; 5 of the top 9 rams)

    Top  2 ranked rams for Self-Replacing Carcass index (SRC$; 5 of the top 9)

We imported Dorset genetics from England, the motherland of the Dorset breed to improve performance and breed type and hope to purchase more in the near future. 

We are in the process of importing Dorset genetics from Australia
