Author Bio


The keys to raising sheep for profit lie in management and marketing. Managing your flock to achieve optimal health, growth and productivity in the most cost-productive manner is absolutely essential if you wish to market your animals for the best possible price. Rather simplistic sounding, isn’t it? It can be—if you follow a few basic guidelines and remember:

You can’t starve a profit out of your animals.

No one has as much to gain or lose as you do from managing and marketing your flock, so no one should work as hard as you do.

Both of these statements should be at the core of your business plan (yes, farming on even a small scale should be viewed as a business) and the purpose of this book is to help you a) get to that point or b) give you an ‘atta boy and a few ideas to take you to the next level of production and profit
