Pocket Guide to Sheep Breeds of New ZealandBook - 2008
Home of more than 40 million sheep (over 10 per person), New Zealand is a major global exporter of sheep products: annual wool exports alone are worth well over $800m. Added to that, there is a rapidly growing interest from small businesses and lifestylers in specialist breeds and yarns. Sheep are also a major drawcard for overseas visitors. All of which popular demand adds up to good reason for publishing a Pocket Guide to Sheep Breeds of New Zealand, along with its companion volume, the Pocket Guide to Cattle Breeds of New Zealand. Originally published in large format several years ago by Reed, both books have been brought thoroughly up to date, with new pictures throughout and extended and updated text.
