Synopsis

Practical Sheep Keeping by Kim Cardell

Practical Sheep Keeping [new paperback edition] explains everything you need to know to manage sheep and keep them healthy. Aimed particularly at the keeper of the small flock - say around thirty ewes - the principles nevertheless apply to flocks of all sizes. From choosing and buying, through housing, feeding and routine management, to breeding and lambing, Kim Cardell offers sound advice based on many years' experience.

About the Author

The daughter of a Cornish sheep farmer, Kim Cardell studied agriculture at Lincoln University in New Zealand and also trained as a newspaper reporter. She was associate editor of the magazine Livestock Farming and, having worked as a freelance for various farming journals and radio and television programmes, became editor of The Sheep Farmer, holding the post for fourteen years. She runs a flock of early lambing ewes at her home in Cornwall.
