|Better Farming Series 12. Sheep and Goat Breeding (FAO, 1977, 51 p.)|
The traditional way of breeding sheep and goats does not take much work, but it also does not produce much.
It takes little work because the animals are not looked after; they are not fed, they are not given water to drink, they are not given any shelter.
But this way of breeding produces little; the animals are small, they are often ill, and their young ones often die.
The flock produces little meat for the family, the village and the country.
The flock produces little money.
The farmer spends little on them, but he also earns little.
If a farmer breeds sheep and goats in the modern way he can earn more money than before.
