Fundamentals in Sheep Judging
by The Breeders Gazette


Sheep are more difficult than any other class of stock competently to judge, because many of their merits and defects are obscured by wool. To an important extent, however, a sheep may be judged by the clothes it wears. Representatives of the fine-wool breeds are judged with special reference to their fleeces, wool being the chief object in breeding them, while the mutton types and classes are rated in the showyard according to their conformation, size, and meat-making characteristics.
