THE REGISTRY FOR BOTH HORNED AND POLLED DORSETS This page was last updated on: March 16, 2022 In 1998 the Continental Dorset Club celebrated its 100th year of existence by having a record breaking National Sale and by donating a foundation flock of Dorsets to Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green. A history book of the Continental Dorset Club & The Dorset Breed was also published to commemorate the breed's everlasting influence in the American sheep industry . Use of this site constitutes your acceptance of our Exec. Secretary/Treas. Debra Hopkins P0 Box 506 N Scituate, Rl 02857-0506 Phone (401) 647-4676 Fax (401) 647-4679 Continental Dorset Club remains committed to the revised Dorset Breed Standard to its education for Dorset breeders and judges. 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.
