sheep! NovDec 2016

Our November/December 2016 issue of sheep! is NOW AVAILABLE. Learn why this magazine is the leading source for sheep farming information for the modern flockmaster seeking to raise sheep for profit or personal use.

Some of our readers have two or three wool sheep that they shear so they can spin the wool and use it themselves. Others own large commercial flocks whose meat and milk they sell all over the world.

And so we give it to them in every issue! You’ll quickly discover that sheep! makes your life better no matter what your interests are, no matter how many sheep you own, and no matter how long you’ve been raising them.
