An effort to make a much bigger profit from their commercial Dorper flock has led Narrabri sheep breeders Bill and Lyn Guest into a partnership with a regional online marketer.
The Guests run Dalman Downs Dorpers, known as 3D Dorpers, and they launched their online business through Paradise Fresh at Narrabri’s Nosh on the Namoi food and wine festival last month.
The Guests have sold their commercial stock direct to processors since starting the enterprise 13 years ago as a hobby.
In the first decade, the Guests worked hard to set up markets for their rams and ewes but they were “stopped dead in their tracks” by the Ovine Johne’s Disease debacle of 2012 which severely curtailed the seedstock business.
