Whether you're about to acquire your first sheep or are interested in diversifying your operation with rare breeds, Storey's Guide to Raising Sheep covers everything small-scale sheep farmers need to know to keep their animals healthy and productive. 

Drawing from years of hands-on experience, Paula Simmons and Carol Ekarius provide expert advice on breed selection, lambing, feeding, housing, pasture maintenance, and medical care.
