Hello from the other side
« on: April 03, 2020, 07:34:01 pm »
I'm from Michigan, USA. We used to raise dairy cows on a small scale and have now switched to dairy sheep. He have an handful of East Friesian/Lacaune crosses. This March began our first lambing season & we will begin milking this month. As questions have popped up I search the internet & many times TAS has come up in the search results & has been very helpful!  There doesn't seem to be as much knowledge or experience with sheep in the states so I am glad to have found a forum to learn along the way!
