Sheep the simple guide to making more money with less work

The national sheep flock is a mere 40% of the size it was at its peak in th early 1990s. Some would say that it is on the verge of losing its critical mass for survival into the future. Others would see it already as a niche market industry, especially in regards to wool.

Farmers in a recent survey gave two key reasons for either quitting sheep or reducing the flock size: "sheep do not pay" or "the work involved in sheep is unacceptable".

We believe sheep do pay - and they don't have to be hard work.

The topics covered in this guide include:

  • The why, what & how of sheep
  • Manage for ease & success
  • Less droving, more driving
  • Headache-free husbandy
  • Healthy sheep save time
  • Well-fed sheep
  • Money grows in paddocks
  • Breeding labour-friendly sheep
  • It can be done!

 

Potential benefits:

  • Easier sheep production and management with less labour
  • Healthier sheep
