Presented by Adam Henson, Sheep on Your Smallholding series consists of four separate programmes providing essential information for sheep keepers. Part One in this series, Establishing Your Flock DVD - A Guide to Buying and Basic Management of a Small Flock, asks how suitable are sheep for the smallholder, what facilities do you need to keep sheep and what are their needs?
Featuring real-life smallholders and farmers who have made a success of keeping sheep profitably for business and as a hobby, this inspirational DVD will answer your questions and help you decide whether keeping sheep is a viable proposition for your smallholding.
The programme also features specialist sheep vets and experts in sheep husbandry who demonstrate how to carry out preventative treatments and stock tasks in a clear and easy to understand way.
Establishing Your Flock includes the following:
What are your circumstances
What do you want sheep for
Rules, regulations and record-keeping (UK)
