About the author

Publisher, Editor and Author

Kathy worked with the Bureau of Land Management for 12 years before founding Livestock for Landscapes in 2004. Her twelve years at the agency allowed her to pursue her goal of helping communities find ways to live profitably AND sustainably in their environment. She has been researching and working with livestock as a land management tool for over a decade. When she's not helping farmers, ranchers and land managers on-site, she writes articles, and books, and edits videos to help others turn their livestock into landscape managers.

    I’d love to see a similar video with non-flocking breeds of sheep.

  2. Great to have information specific to sheep. Since pastured sheep need to be monitored frequently for parasites, they need to be handled often, so the more information about this, the better!

    I’d appreciate more sheep related articles. I also think more information about low stress sheep handling would be great if you can find it.
