Dorper Sheep Association scholarships deadline nears

The Texas Hill Country Dorper Sheep Association will award two college scholarships this fall in memory of one of the state’s pioneers in the Dorper sheep industry.

The scholarships, valued at $1,000 each, are open to any Texas resident. One will be awarded to a high school senior graduating this spring and the other to a college student who will be at least a junior in any Texas college or university this fall.

Scholarship requirements include involvement in agriculture, and especially the Dorper sheep industry in Texas. Applicants with agriculture-related majors in college will be given special consideration.

The scholarships were launched in 2012 in memory of Brad Bernhard, who died of cancer at the age of 48 in 2011. Bernhard, who lived in Fredericksburg, was one of the original founders of the Texas Hill Country Dorper Sheep Association and one of the earliest owners of Dorper sheep in Texas.

Dorpers and White Dorpers are hair sheep developed in South Africa in the 1930s as a breed that would thrive in a low-rainfall environment and produce a high-quality carcass. The state Dorper association was organized in 2007 to promote Dorper and White Dorper sheep in Texas.

Deadline for applications to be received is Monday, April 15. Applicants may complete a scholarship application form online or find out more about the two scholarships by going to the Texas Hill Country Dorper Sheep Association website at thcdorperassociation.com.

For more information, contact Garet von Netzer at 830-997-3210 or gvnppb@gmail.com, or Connie Bernhard at 830-864-4695 or bernhardranch@ctesc.net.
