A.S. Series 69-50
Mechanization in the sheep industry has been slow, while the use of confinement or semi-confinement management systems, labor saving equipment and special constructed housing has increased rapidly in the production of cattle, poultry and swine. Confinement rearing of sheep presents the opportunity to use labor saving equipment and to intensify production. By increasing the overall efficiency and stepping up the lambing percentage, we will be able to help meet the increasing operating costs.
