Ok so I have decided after weeks of research that sheep would be a good fit for me. I have 10 acres of very lush grass. All of it is wire mesh fenced and is flat. Water and shelter readily available. This acreage is separate from what I am using for my other livestock. Am currently debating between a few different breeds. I am going to go with pure bred registered stock. I would like to be able to sell directly to other breeders and of course sell market lambs (yum!) I know I am in no way going to get rich doing this, but would like ot come close to breaking even. I have spent time working with sheep in the past, mostly helping move herds up to summer pasture for the summer in Montana. I do realize how stupid they are at least compared to cattle. I also have horses, a few cows and a steer currently. The breeds I am debating on are: Dorset Polypay Finnsheep California Red The qualities I am looking for are Multiple Births good foragers good growth rate on grass Resistance to parasites I would love to hear from some sheep people! Do you have any experience with these breeds, good, bad? Other advice/ breed recommendations very welcome!!! Thank you!!
