Being one of the oldest studs in SA (started in 1981) the years of selection on genetic value together with performance testing has resulted in animals with functional efficiency and the desired breed characteristics, as can be seen from shows and demand throughout SA and by embryo exports to other countries.
The stud has participated in many national shows -every second year- in the past and has also produced numerous national champions. On 3 occasions it has ended up with the most points at these national shows.
In the March 2005 national show the prefix DTC (of the stud) was ever present and although it never participated in the show, 55 of the possible 91 placings were occupied by sheep bred by the stud or were direct descendents of the stud. This included the junior champion ewe and ram and reserve grand champion ewe and ram. The ram DTC 0204 did particularly well. This feat was repeatd in 2009, where the stud recorded the most points again. The stud also produced the Grand Champion Ewe DTC 5084 (daughter of DTC 3058) and Reserve Grand Champion Ram DTC 7002
