Hi. I'm one of those youngsters like you who is interested in sheep and sheep farming. Someday I'd like to be a sheep farmer. I've created this website to be a place for youngsters to find other people who are interested in sheep farming. Even though I am writing some things about sheep farming, don't depend on this website to find very much about sheep farming. If to want to learn more about sheep farming, you can click on one of my hyperlinks or go to GOOGLE.com.
There are all different sorts of sheep and different places where you can sheep farm. If you want to be a sheep farmer, if you try hard enough you can do it. But you need a lot of land. It's not like you can keep 200 sheep in one square inch. You need about 9 acres, I'm not completely sure.
I'm just beginning to learn about sheep, so if anybody comes to this website, please do send me an email. I would like to know about the different kinds of sheep, what they eat, how much they cost, how much land do you really need, and where do most people sheep farm in the U.S.

Thank you for your help.

Since I finished the web site, at least a month ago, I have found out a lot more about sheep farming. Here is what I've learned:

The minimum amount of land used for raising two to three sheep is about half an acre. But, if you only want to have two or three sheep, sheep raising would be a hobby. But, if you're thinking of making a living off your animals, you would want to have about 1000 to 2000 sheep, and 10,000 acres.

A ewe usually has one to three lambs per pregnancy.

There are three different kinds of products that you can make from sheep: milk, wool, and mutton or lamb.

Even though there is an unlikely story that I will be a sheep farmer, I still have learned a lot more about sheep.

If you are just a kid, and don't know much about sheep, I'd definitely recommend that you join your local 4-H club. If you are in 4-H, your 4-H club will often go to county fairs and show off and present their prize-winning sheep or other animals. You don't have to raise all different animals. You can raise especially sheep or cows or chickens or rabbits.


If you want to raise your sheep on conservation land, you have to make sure there aren't a lot of coyotes or dogs that get loose in conservation land. IN other words, they could be h'ordeuvers.

Thank you for your help.
