Sheep are herd animals, so you will have to keep at least two if you want happy, healthy animals. If you buy your sheep from a local farmer, expect to pay the going rate per kilogram based on the meat price. An alternative would be to ask the farmer whether he has a couple of orphaned lambs ( hanslammers) he’d like taken off his hands. The price will probably range from R500 to R1 000, depending on the age and weight of the lamb.
