Abstract
  • Sheep, one of man's earliest domesticated friends, have provided meat, milk, and clothing for countless millions from the dawn of civilization to the present. In spite of the prominent role played by sheep in the history of our civilization, modern technology and economic forces pose serious problems for the future of sheep and wool. Revolutionary changes have occurred in the industry, not unlike those of agriculture in general. Large range bands of fine-wooled sheep have been almost entirely replaced by farm flocks of medium wool and cross-breed types. With these changes in production have come equally drastic changes in problems of management and marketing of both lamb and wool. Rising production costs, foreign competition, and man-made substitutes provide a challenge to all segments of our industry. It is hoped that these meetings will provide a common ground for exchange of ideas and information which may contribute in a small way to a stronger sheep and wool industry in Oregon. The Department of Dairy and Animal Husbandry is grateful for the splendid cooperation from other segments of the Oregon Sheep and Wool Industry and is happy to cosponsor this program with the Western Oregon Livestock Association.
