Too few of them were useful. Belanger's Dairy Goats and Simmons's Raising Sheep were the only two exceptions. Of course, that was then, a time when books for folks returning to nature just weren't common. Now, as more books are available, it seems Storey's has decided to improve their entire line.
The result is that Storey's Guides are now really excellent and provide a great deal of useful information. This is especially true with Raising Sheep.
Among the numerous books for prospective sheep ranchers I choose this as the best, most complete useful book for the small farmer.
THE Detailed coverage on the Sheep/Lamb/Wool Industry is AWESOME. it not only teaches you how to raise and take care of sheep, but goes into detail with the BUSINESS side of sheep raising for those small and large time farmers!!
Recommended reading by me for sure.
