Overview

Raising sheep involves far more than choosing the perfect breed and training a herding dog. The successful sheep farmer must know how to maintain his animals’ health and solve daily crises, large and small.

Designed to accompany the farmer into the barn, Storey’s Barn Guide to Sheep provides clear, step-by-step help, visible from several feet away. Oversized, heavy-duty pages illustrate dozens of procedures with simple, straightforward illustrations. A nail hole at the top of each page enables the farmer to open to the needed instructions, hang the book on a barn wall, and refer to the step-by-step illustrations throughout every procedure.

Graphic presentations guide farmers through trimming hooves, administering injections, assisting with lambing, bottle feeding, milking, shearing, and every other situation that might arise during the normal course of a sheep’s life. In addition to the procedural information, the book also features full-color anatomical illustrations, a lambing calendar, a feeding chart, and a helpful record-keeping section.

Guiding farmers through the ups and downs of sheep care, Storey’s Barn Guide to Sheep will be a trusted companion and an invaluable practical resource.
