Breeding Stud Sheep
Murray Long
ISBN: 978-0-64309-480-2
144 pages.
$ 39.95
Breeding Stud Sheep shows how to establish and manage a successful sheep stud. All aspects of stud breeding are covered, including where and how to buy your sheep, selecting the right breeding stock for your stud, flock management, nutrition, disease, lambing problems, showing sheep, promotion and marketing, and selling stud genetics. The detailed step-by-step strategies will give the reader the ability to develop alternative approaches that best suit their situation. It also explains how new initiatives such as performance recording, DNA testing and modern reproduction techniques can be integrated with the old, time-honored traditions of sheep breeding. Profiles of highly recognized stud breeders are included, detailing how they started and the strategies they have used to grow their stud sheep operations over many years. This book will help new breeders avoid the pitfalls and mistakes that can occur when starting a new stud venture, and show how to succeed in what is ultimately a tough, but very rewarding industry.

COUNTRYSIDE is the truly original country magazine (established 1917) serving that branch of the Voluntary Simplicity movement seeking greater self-reliance (homesteading), with emphasis on home food production. This includes gardening, small-scale livestock, cooking, food preservation, resource conservation, recycling, frugality, money management, alternative energy, old-time skills, home business, and
much more.
COUNTRYSIDE features reader-written personal experiences and photos straight out of family albums, making each issue just like a long letter from friends who are living the good life, beyond the sidewalks.



  Toil, feel, think, hope; you will be sure to dream enough before you die without arranging for it.
