Sheep have best friends. They are also herd animals which means that they travel in packs. This makes it easier for farmers to move them throughout the field. 


Sheep can be raised for both wool and meat.


Sheep have an excellent memory. It is said they can remember as many as 50 human faces for up to two years. 


Sheep are ruminant animals and have four chambers in their stomach, similar to cattle. They digest their food in two parts. First they eat their raw plant food then they regurgitate it and swallow it again.


The South Dakota State University sheep unit has 75 Hampshire, 75 Columbia and 300 Finn-Dorset-Targhee sheep.
