Sheep—West Cascade Region

Sheep—West Cascade Region.

In the humid, wooded West Cascade region there are few large ranges for sheep, and at present the wolves and panthers occasionally kill sheep, as well as pigs. If these pests would permit it, the West Cascade farmers might always advantageously add a few head of sheep to their general farming stock, as is done in Eastern Canada.

These sheep would be a benefit to the farm by eating the grass which other stocks did not consume, and by giving good manure in return. The wool also would generally command a good price, as small flocks can be better cared for than large ones.
