About this title


The popularity of rare breeds and the growing interest in keeping livestock on a few acres has encouraged many people to establish a small flock of sheep. These enthusiastic new flockmasters, whether they keep rare breeds, native sheep, or some of the continental imports now well established in the UK, require a basic understanding of sheep management which must be just as thorough as that required by farmers running large commercial flocks. Looking after a small flock of sheep can become a most enthralling hobby but newcomers can find it difficult to relate to books written for commercial farmers. This book seeks to encourage, advise and even entertain the new small-scale sheep keeper by setting out the principles of good husbandry based on sound, practical experience.

About the Author:

Jeremy Hunt is an agricultural writer and journalist specializing in livestock production and pedigree breeding. A lifetime's interest in all aspects of stock keeping and good husbandry has concentrated more recently on running a small flock of pedigree sheep. He draws on his extensive practical experience gained from many years of keeping a host of different breeds of stock to produce this guide for the first-time sheep keeper. Jeremy Hunt lives with his wife and two sons in Ribble Valley in Lancashire and writes each week in Farmers Weekly. He is a regular columnist and feature writer for Country Life and contributes to other country and livestock publications.
