Daan Bosman – Dorpers and Boergoats Consultancy
Daan Bosman started his “Dorper” Career in 1957. He bought his first Dorper Stock from Mr. Hennie de Smidt, who was one of the original people who established the Dorper Breed. Daan was a stud breeder who had a special interest in Genetics. Personal highlights was when he won SA Championships with his Dorpers and Boergoats.
