    1. Unbelievably long winded, surprisingly incomplete for as wordy as it is With this type of book, charts, drawings, pictures are all MUCH helpful than long winded paragraphs For example, several paragraphs are written about each of 62 breeds of sheep However, the information in the paragraphs written about each breed is all over the place For example, for one breed of sheep, it will state that the breed grows wool as well as hair, give some background on the breed not at all helpful for a homeste [...]

    2. Outstanding book for the beginner and beyond A direct descendant of Paula Simmons s 1976 book Raising Sheep the Modern Way Updated and Revised Edition Especially strong in choosing among breeds Has a chapter on showing Less technical than Ron Parker s The Sheep Book, to which I give a slight edge overall At least one of these two is a must for the beginning American shepherd Have them both if you can.

    3. Even though we probably aren t getting sheep anytime soon, I m hanging onto this book because it is chock full of in depth information I m never sure what to expect from non fiction, but this particular volume is top notch, clearly benefiting from multiple rewrites by several authors to create a well rounded beginner and intermediate guide to sheep care.

    4. After reading this book I feel like I have a good grasp on how to take care of sheep I just bought 4 lambs a week ago I wish there was info on an organic approach there was pretty much nothing about how to raise sheep without antibiotics and wormers It was also unclear whether it s really ok to feed sheep corn or whether people just do it anyway to make them fat If you are about to get some sheep for the first time I would say this book is an awesome place to start for info.

    5. Storey s Guide to Raising Sheep is a fantastic entry book into the world of sheep farming The authors pulled together a handbook filled with practical advice and its written from a position that makes it accessable to a layman I m not sure if I will ever become a sheep farmer, but if I do I believe this book will be an oft referenced guide on my bookshelf.

    6. I really didn t know a whole lot about sheep prior to reading this book It provided a detailed and well paced introduction to the basics of sheep and their care The book includes a number of well done diagrams and examples which help explain hands on tasks that are hard to visualize from theory.

    7. I loved the design of this book everything seemed quite practical in terms of form and content I don t have any experience with raising sheep I guess I picked this up simply out of curiosity I d recommend it to anyone with an interest in raising sheep on a large or small scale.

    8. Storey s Guide to Raising Sheep is a good book for beginners For someone like myself, a life long farmer but new to sheep, I found it a little lacking Don t think I didn t learn anything I did learn a good deal I was just hoping for .

    9. A thorough guide to keeping sheep on any scale, but especially helpful for the small homesteader Discusses raising sheep for wool and meat.
