We'd like to add goats or sheep to our farm, and we'd like some input. We need milk and meat, and we would really like fiber as well, we're torn

'Do well' is not enough detail for us to help you.

What conditions do you need your sheep to do well in?

Especially the climate, the topography (upland sheep won't appreciate spongy turf and lowland sheep don't climb as well and their hooves grow more slowly.)

What sort of management program do you have in mind?
