WERA-039: Scientists from our participating universities have demonstrated improved sheep and goat production efficiencies, control of noxious plants, production of healthier animal product, improved fiber production, and enhanced communication—all of which either measurably reduce operating costs, increase profitability, improve the health of citizens, or improve the environment. Issue: The American sheep and goat industries are undergoing a new awareness of their role in food and fiber production within an ecologically and economically sustainable production setting. Sheep and goats in modern management systems provide more ...
is practised throughout the majority of the inhabited world, and has been fundamental to many civilizations.

Sheep and goats in Turkey
Range forages and grasslands constitute a large part of the feed supply for sheep and goats in Turkey. Stubbles and fallow areas are other resources utilized for meeting the nutritional requirements of these species. Goats, in addition, have access to bushes, shrubs and forest areas; however, utilization of these areas by goats has become increasingly limited because of the measures applied by the state for protecting woodlands and forests. With the mecanization of agriculture since 1950, rangelands and grasslands have been subjected to heavy ploughing for arable crop production. Thus the area of range lands and ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Sheep back in favour
Making More from Sheep forum in Wangaratta last week that growing demand in domestic and export markets had sparked a renewed interest in sheep. This interest had been boosted by a decline in the national flock and variable returns from cropping. "And, with the move from a wool-dominant system to sheepmeat, the ewe is becoming more important," he said. "She is the engine room but is also associated with the biggest costs." Andrew said the "future ewe" would produce a rapidly growing lamb and carry easy-care traits. These included fewer flies, worms, horns and cover, with reliance on less chemicals and labour. She would produce ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
NWROC dairy herd dispersal marks end of 115-year program
CROOKSTON, Minn. — George Marx retired as Northwest Research and Outreach Center's dairy scientist seven years ago, but he felt compelled to return to the center last week. Marx wanted to be on hand Friday at the center's dairy dispersal sale. The center's 120-milking cow herd, embryos and youngstock plus farm equipment was on the auction. The event marked the end of NWROC's 115-year era in dairy research. "I am feeling a little down today," Marx said as the herd sale began. "This is the end of an era. But I had to come and see the herd off." The program is a victim of tough economic times. The ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Sheep Production and Management: sheep nutrition
A ewe's nutritional needs are not static; they vary largely with her stage of production. For 16 to 20 weeks of the year, the ewe's energy needs are very critical (such as during breeding, immediately before lambing, and while lactating). Feed levels can be lowered to reduce the feed cost during the early stages of gestation and when ewes are dry. Maintenance of the ewe is generally thought of in terms of her nutritional requirements when dry, because at that time her requirements are the lowest of the year. However, wool production is a continuous process that must be considered as part of the nutrient requirements ...

Agriculture: sheep feed, linseed meal, wheat bran
I have read your books on small scale livestock farming and sheep and other books as well and we are starting small to develop a grass based livestock farm with sheep as the center peice.  I have run into a disagreement with our local farm vet (the only one within 100 miles) and was hoping that you could point me in some new research areas.    Two questions--one, our vet is opposed to us mixing our own, whole grain feed (supplement to our hay and pasture).  She thinks we should just feed a pelleted feed from the local feed store.  We've been using a reciepe from your sheep book (50% corn, 20% wheat ...
What are your thoughts on milk in the diet. Consider raw mil vs ...
Many wholistic practitioners do not believe that milk should be a part of the human diet. In the more conventional look at health, dairy is considered an essential food group. Yet more and more people are becoming sensitive to milk in one way or another - lactose intolerance and allergy. Then the difference between the raw milk our ancestors used for so long vs today's pasteurized dairy enters into the equation. posted 1 month ago in Public Health and Safety | Closed Share This Social Media strategist|Global Marketing|Diversity Consultant| SM/Diversity/Cultural/Leadership Speaker|LinkedIn Trainer see all my answers Best ...
