Abundant rainfall for forage production and
a large population consuming sheep products in the eastern United
States makes this area an ideal location for sheep farming. This
and the companion web site about marketing (http://www.sheepgoatmarketing.info/)
are designed to help farmers take advantage of the opportunity
to develop or expand sheep farms in the region.
Beef cattle and goats can also take advantage of the forage production in the region. Click on the following links for information from Cornell University:
