Our Story

Amagoh Dorpers Stud is located in Machakos County on Kangundo Road approximately 55 kms from Nairobi Central Business District.

We are registered members of the Dorper Sheep Breeders Society of Kenya. Our Breeding Sires and selected Breeding Ewes are registered with the Kenya Stud Book. This is to ensure that our Stud adheres and maintains to the highest standards of the breed in Kenya.

We produce sale rams for both stud farmers looking at upgrading their flock and for the lamb meat business. Our young rams are raised extensively on free range pasture and are not given any additional feed until they start the preparation stage for sale. The young ewes are bred at 10 months.

Our aim is to breed for excellence – Excellent conformation, Excellent natural coping ability as well as Excellent meat characteristics. Our animals need to grow fast and in order for us to do this, we select for this excellent characteristic.
