This text was originally intended to serve as a brief guide to sheep management. It contains practical information, presented in common, every-day language, which will greatly aid shepherds and those keeping domestic sheep. Much of the information offered within this text is timeless, and will prove as much use to the modern shepherd as it did to those at the time of its original publication. The chapters of this book include: 'The Shepherd and His Calling', 'Establishing the Flock', 'Value of Sheep on the Farm', 'Small Flock for Beginners', 'Scrub Ram Unprofitable', 'Selection of Ram', 'Age of Ram to Use', 'Care of Ram in Summer', 'Ram in the Fall', 'Number of Ewes to One Ram', 'Feed for Ram', etcetera. This antique volume was originally published in 1903, and we are proud to republish it now, complete with a new introduction on farming.
