What an utter load of rubbish! nothing wrong with sheep if you manage the job, problem with most people that have sheep don't seem to look after them and think "ah they will be ok if I don't do anything to them this week". I run as many sheep as any man on my own and I haven't had a struck sheep or any get out this year at all (if the fences are crap put up electric!), as for dyeing they are no worse than cattle really just there is a hell of a lot more of them, if you had 2400 cattle I'm pretty sure you would be picking up a dead fairly regularly.
100 percent return on investment my small sheep enterprise returns each year.Cant think of any farm enterprise which generates the same percentage return.As for house being supplied with job theres good reason farmer want some around farm 24/7 simple as and the house should be free cus most farm houses ive seen are kipsTheres everything wrong with a barsteward sheep but each to their own
