Sheep farming is practiced throughout the country.  There is an estimated 24,5 million sheep distributed throughout South Africa and 86% of the total number is found in the Eastern Cape.  The Merino has proven very profitable over the long term.  Although meat is the major income generator, it is of critical importance to ensure production of good yield and quality wool.  Wool ensures a sustainable long term income and a profitable Merino.
