Breeding Stud Sheep

By Murray Long

Breeding Stud Sheep by Murray Long

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.
