GUIDE TO BREEDING, LAMBING, KEEPING AND MANAGEMENT
Written for those new to sheep, this book gives clear guidance as to what is involved, what initial decisions need to be made, and how much land and equipment are needed. It describes the tasks involved in sheep husbandry, with advice on when and how to carry out the tasks. Suggestions are made as to how difficulties can be avoided by working with the natural instincts of sheep. This is a clear and concise book, invaluable to those new to sheep, particularly in the early years of sheep-keeping.
