Group promotes raising sheep

FRESNO, Calif.

The Rebuild Sheep Committee hopes to attract ranchers who now raise other livestock, to consider raising sheep. The number of sheep in both California and across the country has declined for many years.

The ag group says prices for wool, lamb and mutton have been holding strong, recently. It wants to encourage livestock ranchers to diversify into sheep production.
