The hardy, multipurpose Dominique chickens that came to the New World with the Pilgrims and later travelled in pioneer saddlebags to help settle the West were once too numerous to count, by 1990 a mere 500 hens survived. This is but a single example of the diminishing diversity of farm animals: half of once-common livestock breeds are endangered, others are already extinct. The need to preserve farm animal diversity is increasingly urgent, says the author of this definitive book on endangered breeds of livestock and poultry. Farmyard animals may hold critical keys for our survival, Jan Dohner warns, and with each extinction, genetic traits of potentially vital importance to our agricultural future or to medical progress are forever lost. This comprehensive book features: * complete information on the history, characteristics, qualities, and traits of 138 endangered livestock breeds (goats, sheep, swine, cattle, horses, other equines) and 53 poultry breeds (chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese) * where these breeds may be seen today * the degree of rarity of each breed in the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada * information on feral livestock populations * 160 colour photographs and over 80 black and white photos and historical illustrations

Sheep are one of the most beloved of farm animals, and also the most versatile. They produce a myriad of goods from soft wool to fine meat, and of course, tender companionship. This guide contains a wealth of knowledge for raising and caring for a flock of sheep, and is unique in its delicate balance of practical wisdom and touching anecdote. With its gorgeous, full-color photographs and information on everything from feeding to raising lambs to gathering wool, Living With Sheep is the ultimate guide to sheep. Why sheep? Because sheep have lambs. Because sheep are soft and fuzzy and can't kill you with a kick or a butt. Because sheep are easy companions who require little beyond understanding. Because the wool sheep produce so copiously can be used for everything from sweaters to comforters to felt slippers to home insulation. Because waking to the gentle sound of sheep mowing the grass under your window will improve your opinion of lawn mowing. Because a leg of lamb stuffed with garlic and rosemary and slowly roasted in your kitchen on a winter's afternoon will bring you to the apex of culinary achievement. And because, finally, as you sit in the hay on a spring morning with a warm, dry lamb sleeping in your arms and a watchful ewe breathing in your ear and nickering in the back of her throat to comfort her little fellow, you'll realize that you've grown unwilling to live without sheep. Chuck Wooster's friendly advice and appealing anecdotes help readers: Choose and acquire a flock of sheep Feed and shelter their animals Prevent illness and treat it if it occurs Handle the lambing process Gather wool . . . and much more Living with Sheep is the ultimate guide to sheep - whether you really want to raise them or if you simply love them.
