Ultimate Guide

to Raising Sheep

"With a plot of land and a bit of help, raising sheep can be fun and rewarding. Raising sheep provides you with wool and delicious meat, milk, and cheese for your hard work."

Romney (has long, lustrous fleece) Suffolk (popular for meat) Hampshire (one of the largest breeds) East Friesian (good milk producer) Lacaune (excellent breed for cheese)

Breeds of Sheep

"After deciding which breed you are going to raise, it is important to select individual animals carefully. Make sure to buy your sheep directly from the farmer who raised them."

Choosing Your Sheep

"The best kind of fence for sheep is smooth-wire electric or woven wire non-electric fencing. In warm summer months, sheep need shade from trees or an open-roof structure."
