Dorper Lambs are raised at our farm in Perris,
California on Alfalfa Grass. No Grains. No Antibiotics. No Growth Hormones.
Dorper Lambs are bred for meat, not wool, so they
do not produce lanolin which gives wool lamb it’s gamey flavor. Experience THE
DORPER DIFFERENCE and learn for yourself what makes this meat so mild, delicate
Alfalfa Grass-fed lamb is a significant source of
omega-3 fats, a nutrient whose adequacy in the diet is associated with
decreased risk of inflammation and possibly with reduced risk of heart disease.
In addition, the ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fats is far better in grass-fed
lamb than in the average U.S. diet.
Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) is found in
variable amounts in grass-fed lamb. Increased intake of this nutrient has been
associated with reduced inflammation and reduced body fat in some, but not all,
About 40% of the fat in grass-fed lamb comes from
oleic acid, a monounsaturated fat. This type of fat (for which extra-virgin
olive oil is lauded) has been associated with decreased risk of heart disease.
Alfalfa Grass-fed lamb is a very good source of
selenium and a good source of zinc. Healthy intake of these minerals is a
protective factor against oxidative stress because they are co-factors in
important antioxidant enzyme systems.
