Wooly sheep

Small ruminant research is an important part of the AFSRC mission. These sheep, which are ready for shearing, are part of the Hill Land Grazing Management research program. AFSRC researchers are working to define the relationship of grazing management and behavior with landscape features with the goal of designing environmentally benign grazing management practices, which capitalize on the dynamics of herbage growth in complex terrain.
