Thank you for getting social about animal agriculture! Share any of the following graphics to your social media pages!


American producers are working hard to meet increased demand for goat’s milk products! Goat’s milk, cheese and soaps have all gained popularity in the last decade.


By grazing in areas inaccessible to mowers clearing undergrowth in forests and woodlands, goats can greatly reduce the amount of tinder that causes wildfires!


Love wine and fruit?? Sheep are often used to help control weeds in vineyards and orchards!


Shearing is nothing more than a haircut and does not hurt the animal. The wool from one sheep, referred to as a fleece, is generally removed so that it holds together in one piece. Within a week the sheep have re-grown enough wool to keep them warm.


In California, Oregon, Washington and Canada, sheep grazing in forest plantations can double the number of healthy trees and increase each tree’s growth by 30 percent compared with areas not grazed!


DYK: 94% of sheep farms are family owned. There are more than 80,000 family farmers and ranchers caring for over 6 million sheep throughout the United States!


Across America, people have rediscovered sheep for an age-old skill: grazing vegetation to create healthier landscapes. Sheep are able to eat noxious weeds, promote healthy forests, fight weeds and insects in agronomic crops and reducing wildfires!


This might sound crazy, but wool can be worn year round! It is an absorbent fiber that can regulate body temperature, making it perfect for any season! So as you put on your wool sweaters and gloves this winter, remember to thank our sheep farmers!


People normally think of guard dogs, but did you know llamas and donkeys are also used to protect sheep and lambs from predators?
