Sheep continuously send out signals about their health, well-being, nutrition and behaviour. The challenge for every sheep famer and sheep owner is how to interpret these signals and use them. Sheep Signals, global edition, is a richly illustrated guide on how to interpret the behaviour, posture and physical characteristics of individual animals and groups.
When observing sheep it is important not to jump to conclusions immediately, but instead always to ask yourself three questions: What do I see? Why did this happen? What does this mean? If you know what to look for, you can pick up the signals everywhere and any time. Sheep Signals will show you how.
