Description

"The present outlook for the sheep business appears to warrant the maintenance of many more farm flocks than are now being kept in these districts, and this bulletin is designed to further the expansion of the industry by pointing out its possibilities and by giving examples of good farm practice with sheep. The methods of handling and feeding sheep as practiced on 12 representative irrigated farms, large and small, and in various parts of the Northwest, are described in some detail. A few of these farms specialize in sheep, but on most of them the sheep enterprise is combined with some other major enterprise, such as dairying, hog raising, growing sugar beets, or orcharding. One of the more serious problems that the farmer must face in introducing sheep on an irrigated farm is that of pasture; hence special attention has been given to outlining methods to be followed in establishing pasture grasses and pasture supplements." -- p. 2
