Welcome to the Northern Ireland Dorset Club Website

The Northern Ireland Dorset Sheep Breeder's Club has been in existence for over 60 years and has grown rapidly in recent times.

The club is very active in promoting the Dorset breed and supporting and encouraging the breeders through the development of breeding techniques, knowledge and skills to further expand the population of Dorset Sheep in Northern Ireland.

As well as ensuring special Dorset classes at agricultural shows, the club organises a National Show and four pedigree sales across the province annually. The Premier Sale in July and the Autumn Sale in October, are both held in McClellands Livestock Market, Ballymena. There are two sales in August, an EU export sale is held in Hilltown and a breed sale is held in Omagh Livestock Market.

The social aspect of the Club is also very important and members seek to encourage new breeders to join in all club activities.
