THE BA­SICS

go! Platteland - - SHEEP -

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.
