Counting sheep.

The demand for sheep was at its highest in the 1940s, just shearing the 40 million range. There are now about 7.5 million raised in the United States, the top breeds of which are British Milksheep, East Friesian, Lacaune and Sarda.

Have you herd?

Sheep are famous for their thick, fluffy fleece which is a popular source for yarn, clothing and other wool textiles. You can also thank them for a variety of industry contributions, such as milk, cheese, Lanolin, lamb, mutton and leather.
