The 2016 Inaugural Eastern Region Dorper and White Dorper Sale was held in Dubbo today at the Showground with vendors travelling far and wide to attend.

Brendon Duncan, Glen Park Stud, Wentworth purchased Whynot 140231 from vendor Mark Gett from Whynot Stud, Narrabri, NSW for $5400.

Mr Gett said he was 'happy with the results.'

"I brought two rams over and the other one sold for $1800," he said.

Mr Gett said the demand for dorpers was increasing.

"I'm already getting orders for 2017," he said.

"It's definitely a growing industry.

"I think people are now realising the potential of this sheep and how well they can survive on very little."

Mr Gett said he was happy with the number of people who turned out for the event.

"I think most vendors would be happy with their results," he said.

Mr Gett, who runs the Whynot Stud in Narrabri with his family, not only farms dorper sheep, but cattle, legumes and does hay contracting.

He said after the event today he would make his way back home and start back at work on the family property.
