A few years ago, a committee was formed to put together an educational guidebook of the “Dorset Breed Standard of Excellence” that would include picture of all the traits whether good, acceptable and not acceptable, so people would have visual reference of the traits to make it easier to comprehend and understand. Thanks to the great efforts of Melanie Barkley, Penn State Extension Educator, past CDC Board Member and Dorset breeder of many years, collected the photos and designed the attached guidebook. are offering this book as a pdf file on the CDC website currently and it will be forwarded to all of the CDC Certified judges that we have current emails for. As you scroll through the photos you will notice that some photos are missing. If you have any photos that depict the trait where we are missing photos please forward them to the that you think is appropriate, please send those on. It is our goal to get all of the pictures filled in and then be able to make a hard copy of this guidebook to publish for breeders and judges. Please take some time and go through the new guidebook. I think you will find it full of educational materials and photos that help explain the good traits we are looking for in Dorset breed, and those that we are trying to avoid.
