I have a few acres in the back of my property that I can't always keep cut if I get rain every week. I am considering fencing it in and putting some barbados out there to keep the grass/brush down and I hear they are good to eat too. They are supposed to be very hardy and resistant to parasites. Little or no care seems to be needed. A little slough runs through the back that would provide them water. Plenty of browse available to feed. Anybody have experiences with leaving barbado sheep out to pasture? How did they do on their own? Was the meat good quality? Does anybody know of someone who may want to sell a few in the next month or so?
