pilgrimvalley Posted April 24, 2022 Share Posted April 24, 2022 i have been raising hair sheep the last few years and like them a lot. i have raised many different animals through the years... hair sheep shed their coat without shearing and their meat is a bit leaner than normal sheep >>> kind of like deer or buffalo meat... i raised goats also in past years, but milking them is not something i would care to do... although it is possible. chickens are a good animal for the small farm. fairly efficient on feed... the hair sheep will help you clean up the acreage....inexpensive lawn mowers....they reproduce readily with 2-3 lambs common. i think i average 2 lambs.... all animals must have a certain amount of protection from predators.... that is the big / hard part.... most problem i had with the predators bothering the chickens... i have shot at coyotes to keep them away... a big worry at times... have a great day... just thought i would toss out some ideas to you!😎 this momma hair had twins 2 days ago found the at about 7pm in the wind...they wer just born as she still passing the afterbirth... i get white ones, brown ones, black ones,,, different color patterns,,, i like the colors...
