Aaron, Donald G. Ely. Sheep farming is among the traditional business and occupations of the people of some countries around the world. Sheep have been rearing as a domestic animal from the ancient time. Usually sheep farming means 'rearing sheep commercially for the purpose of meat, milk and wool production'.

    The history of the domestic sheep goes back to between and BCE, and the domestication of the wild mouflon in ancient Mesopotamia. Sheep are among the first animals to have been domesticated by humans, and there is evidence of sheep farming in Iranian statuary dating to that time period. These sheep were primarily raised for meat, milk, and skins.   As such, this joins a range of similar books, such as the Haynes Manuals, Jane Upton and Dennis Soden's Introduction to Keeping Sheep, Kim Cardell's Practical Sheep Keeping, Mary Castell's Starting with Sheep, and Tim Tyne's Sheep Book for Smallholders, etc.

    This is a great introduction to the art of the shepherd for anyone considering a fun, challenging, and loving venture. Whether you're thinking about a new profitable business, or just want a couple of dairy sheep for family consumption, this book addresses all the little details with interesting and funny anecdotes thrown in for a laugh/5(26).
