We would like to raise sheep, right now we are in the researching, planning phase. I would like to raise a wool breed that handspinners would like and a breed that would be good to eat, and a breed that would be good for a beginner. I found the market report http://www.mda.mo.gov/Market/reports_mo.htm We live between Kansas city and St. Jo Missouri. I am not going to buy an animal from an auction but is this a good way to predict the market for sheep? (In one report it said demand light and supply moderate?) I guess what I'm asking is how do I find out if there is a market for sheep in my area. Thanks for your help!
