Overview

How to Raise Sheep by Philip Hasheider

Fluffy white sheep dotting green fields have been a part of the American landscape for centuries. And these days, this picture is more and more often a part of the small farms that have always been at the heart of country life. If you’ve ever envisioned sheep in your own pasture—one or two hobby animals or a full scale herd—this book is the perfect place to begin. With information on everything from particular breeds to feed requirements, fencing and general care, showing and breeding and marketing, this handy, expert guide tells you all you need to know to raise healthy sheep. Author Philip Hasheider, himself a successful farmer, offers reliable directions for getting started and going the distance. He discusses the merits of various breeds, as well as the basics of different farming methods—organic, sustainable, and conventional—and which approach best meets your needs.
