Sheep Caretaker seeks to help everyday beginners in sheep rearing start and grow their profitable sheep flock in 2022 and beyond.
While you might need to own hundreds of sheep and an abundance of land to make a living from sheep farming, owning a small flock that you use for wool, meat, or milk can be an enjoyable hobby that brings in a few dollars.
Sheep are friendly and endearing, so they are popular among 4Hers, retirees, and everyone in between. As long as you have an acre or two of land per 2-4 sheep, you will find them relativity inexpensive to buy and maintain as long you are knowledgeable.
Our goal is to turn you into happy, well-informed hobbyists or prosperous small business persons by increasing what you know about your fuzzy companions.
We’ll share many individual breed guides, answers to common questions, and ways to help your sheep thrive through these uncertain times. Whether you live in North America, Australia, or even Africa, we would love to help you make a profit year-on-year with your flock, regardless of your farm size.
