Running a Small Flock of Sheep uses a step-by-step approach and has been written for small-scale sheep farmers and inexperienced people considering a rural life-style change. It will prepare the reader for each procedure and event on a sheep farm.

The book begins with an introduction to the basic principles and procedures of sheep farming and the economics and required farm infrastructure for different sheep enterprises. There are chapters on handling techniques, the obligations of owners, and laws and regulations covering the welfare of sheep. The remainder of the text deals with sheep husbandry including health and nutrition, condition scoring, breeding, lamb care and weaner management. There are separate chapters on wool production and prime lamb production. The final chapter covers the diagnosis, control and prevention of sheep diseases.

This reliable and understandable guide provides all the information anyone needs to make the right choices in successfully managing a small flock of sheep, whether you're running a single pet or several hundred sheep for prime lamb, wool or dual purpose.

About the Author:

David G . Hinton has spent most of his 36-year career working with farmers as an Animal Health Officer with the Department of Agriculture / Primary Industries in central Victoria. His chief aim has always been to empower producers with training and education so that they can confidently manage situations in their own flocks and herds. He has had extensive involvement in training courses for both established graziers and new farmers and has written numerous articles, government reports, information sheets and books.

Review:

"This is a comprehensive and well-presented and illustrated manual that could answer queries and prevent costly mistakes by smallholders." (Grass Roots Magazine)
