We are two prairie dwellers with a simplistic and balanced approach to raising sheep. We manage a flock of ewes on grass and with low inputs.
Sheep are a charismatic, hardy, easily managed ruminant animal, highly under utilized in grassland systems.
Ranching connects land with livestock and is a compelling, diverse and clarifying way of life.
A flock of ewes and lambs is often touted as being more labor intensive than other livestock but this isn't necessarily the case.
