dc.description.abstract"Missouri ranks as the leading state in the corn belt in the production of early spring lambs. A relatively short winter with sufficiently low temperatures to hold sheep parasites in check, and an early spring, make conditions nearly ideal for the production of February lambs. Pasture from bluegrass and the small grains (wheat, rye, barley and oats mixed with rape) supplies early spring grazing for ewes. A liberal milk flow as a result of good pasture enables February and March lambs to reach the late May and early June market. These natural conditions and the proximinity of markets give Missouri sheep raisers advantages not common in other sections of the corn belt."--First paragraph.eng
