Any lime we have this situation of fairly good cash returns per acre we sec that product taking its place in a small- farm diversified section. Sheep, it was argued, use more rougluific than do cattle. This point is perhaps well founded Sheep eat more weedy matcria than do rattle. Sheep seem to thrive on sericea lespedezt after it has gotten too tall and weedj j for cattle. Sericea might become a natural for sheep in years to come. Those with small tracts, such as a poultry producer with an ad' ditional 15 or 20 acres, can wel use sheep for keeping down the i growth and for additional income I Such a person might have an hour or so pcr day to care for the sheep but would- not have Ihe machilery for mowing. The fear of dogs among sheep growers is not as great today as it was 30 years ago. Our dogs , must have changed. Some soot; I breeding has been accomplished We now have the small f a m i l y pels rather than the rangy dogs. | They cither have a responsible master or they do not survive. On (he negative side, shccp involve close attention. They must have worm t r e a t m e n t . They must bo cared for at lambing time. They must be clipped in spring, and other features of their husbandry demand attention. The sheep population of this section, however, is materially low as contrasted with cattle which are high. Sheep arc not a bad bet for the Northwest Arkansas small farmer. One of the outstanding- breeders of this rnuntry has operated well on a small unit.
