Hi: Have you wondered how it is that you have heard that you can Milk Cows and Goats but have never heard of Milking Sheep !!

Well,it's like this ! The USA Milks alot of Cows and some Goat Dairies 
are known but we just never thought Sheep were for anything other than WOOL and MEAT, Right !
Well it has been a little know secret I guess,But ,HEY They Do Milk Sheep and there are alot of
Dairies out there.The biggest is out in New York (yes,this is right) and they have about 1000 head
of Sheep,there own Cheese Making operation and other things that help draw people out to this Dairy.
They are very well know and have been in business a long, long time.So now that I have totally
freaked you outlet me give you some more info to digest.


#1.  Sheeps Milk has more Vitamins and Minerals than any other Milk.
#2. Sheep normally eat grass and hay like a cow so their Milk has no off taste from eating weeds.
#3. Sheeps Milk is very high in Butterfat and solids.
#4. If you are Lactose Intolerant than you more than likely can have Sheep's Milk products.
#5. The Milk almost tastes like cows milk except it is Thicker,Creamy,little sweeter and with
all the high Vitamins and Minerals in it we call it the Gaterade of All Milk for good reason.
#6. Now you know that raw cows milk needs a large cooler to be kept in,but did you know
that Sheep's Milk can be frozen without harm to the Milk.
#7. When you thawout cows milk the liquid seperates into a mess but with Sheep's Milk it stays
together so it can be drank or made into products when ever you need to as it won't spoil right away.
#8. It takes about 9 gallon of cows Milk to make 1# of Cheese but 11gallon of Sheep's Milk
will make about 16# of Cheese.
#9. Sheep will produce 1qt., per Milking and you Milk 2x a day. Now cows produce a Lot more
Milk but with Sheep's Milk you get More Product out of the Milk.
#10. It seems that more and more people want Clean ,Fresh and Pure Raw Milk and this is the Future!
No more Spoiling Milk because you can freeze unused Milk.
We Milked for over 20 years and in my coming Blog I will help you get started into the
Great World of Sheep Milking.
Go to your search engine and type in Sheep Dairy and see what comes up !

11:30:18 -0500 Subject: [dairysheep] Opportunity The Wisconsin Sheep Dairy Cooperative

is in the early stages of building a new dairy plant for the

production of cheese, yogurt and other dairy products

We anticipate large growth in the production and marketing of our products

and the needs of our dairyplant customers with a potential need

for the eventual production in the neighborhood of ten million pounds of sheep milk

which will take 10,000 to 12,000 ewes spread out over 20 to 25 farms to produce.

To accomplish this goal we will need to expand existing farms and start up new farms in our area.

If you are interested in large scale production of sheep milk, can relocate

and would like to become part of our team, I would like to hear from you.

Even if you feel this is something you would like to do in a year

or two, you need to start planning now as the process to get started takes some time.

Probably much more time than someone may anticipate.

If You Are Interested In Milking Sheep Give Us A Call And We Will Answer Your ???

Did you know that Sheep Milk has more vitamins

and minerals than Goat or Cow Milk ?

Did you know that if you are

Lactose Intolerant than

you probably will be able to have

Sheep Milk products ?

Did You Know that besides great tasting

Cheese, you can

make Ice Cream, Yogurt,Smudge

(check out our products),

Lotions,Soaps and you can drink this great Milk ?

Sheep Milk is very rich as it

has a high butterfat content

and it is slightly sweet.

Sheep Milk always tastes good as

Sheep do not eat all those strange

weeds that a goat eats.

Sheep eat grass,hay and some grain

like a cow does so the

milk is always Pure.

We here at Stoney Acres are selling the

milk for $8.00 a gallon.

Now you may not know this but this

milk can be frozen for months

at a time which means

if you have small amounts of milk

and don't know what

to do with the Milk so it will not spoil for months.

You Freeze It.

We use 1 gallon freezer bags putting

1/2 gallon in it to sell.

Now there is No spoilage and

people do not have to

worry about spilling it .

The best Sheep Milking breed is the

EAST FRIESIAN as they

are the Holstein of the DAIRY Sheep.

The Dairy Sheep can produce 1 quart of

milk 2x a day.

It does not sound like a lot but because

this milk has more

solids in it you can get more product

out of the milk.

For more info on the value of Sheep Milk go to :

http://www.livestrong.com


If you are wanting to try Milking Sheep so see

if it is something you want to make Money at

I recommend buying a Regular breed Of Sheep

like the Dorset or the St. Croix as they do not cost alot( $250 )

compared to the East Friesian ($800.00 + ) ,

they are gentle, smallish, good mothers.

The St.Croix shed there wool so no shearing

and they are very disease resistant.

Why invest in expensive animals and than find out

this is not your thing !

You should read my blog on milking on this site to learn more !

Missouri RAW MILK STANDARD

196.935 RSMo provides for the sale and/or delivery of raw milk from a producer to an

individual for that individual’s own use.

The Missouri Attorney General Office has interpreted the point of origin of the sale of raw

milk is the producer’s farm. Attorney General Opinion 113-73 further interprets 196.935

saying that a dairy farmers cannot sell raw milk from a distribution center off site.

Do You Feel You Are Always Out Of Time

To Do Things Around The Farm?

Would You Like To Get Those Pastures Cleaned?

Have you brush hogged your pastures yet?

I charge $14.00/hr your place,your equipment-      417-668-5560

If I Do The Brush Hog Work That Leaves

You More Time for The HONEY_DO List!!!

There is a reason to do it you know,Brush Hogging!

A pasture is like your yard in that by cutting it,

the darn thing will grow as your yard keeps doing,

but if you let the weeds take over and do not cut

it than there is no food for the animals,

just weeds.It may seem like a waste of

time but in the end the weight gain

on your animals will be a reward!!
