Curiosities and unusual information to learn about the world of wool and appreciate one of the most precious fibers of all time

Sheep cattle raised in the wild usually graze at least eight hours a day: for this reason the feeding of a sheep in reduced environments must offer enough forage to compensate for the deficit in natural grazing. They prefer to eat short, tender pastures that grow very close to the field surface. The term pasture defines a wide range of plant species: grasses, clover, alfalfa (Medicago sativa), chicory, legumes, shrubs, etc. They drink fresh, clean water and, if adults, consume about 15 liters per days that can rise to 20 in the summer.
