    The best book for someone interested in dairy sheep, who has never had sheep before and has no idea how to start. I gained so much knowledge, and ideas. I can’t wait to get my own flock of dairy mutts.

    This book is like a chat with a dear friend. Rachel’s mix of no-nonsense advice, encouragement, and humor make this an excellent and easy read for anyone who’s ever wanted to know more about dairy sheep. You’ll get a bit of history and science, some practical sheep husbandry tips, tried and true sheep milk recipes, and a whole lot of inspiration. I can’t recommend this one enough!

    The Guide to Homestead Dairy Sheep is a book that needed to be written! This comprehensive book includes beautiful photographs and answers many questions a homesteader may have about milking sheep. With helpful diagrams, breed information, and clear instructions, Rachel Hester writes as if she were beside you as you learn. If you are curious about breed selection, training your sheep, treating disease, lambing issues, feeding, and more, this book will get you started.
