The only problem is with my fencing. It's mostly 4-wire barbed or straight. Won't sheep stray through that? On 2 sides of our pastures we have other irrigated fields that sometimes look "greener" because he treats them with fertilizers. Do sheep wander off as much as cows?
I don't know how many lamb and sheep I can support correctly on 23 irrigated acres. Any idea? I'd think at least 2 adults per acre?
