Black sheep: Sheep farmers will struggle from low demand for lamb and wool products
Sheep Farming in the US
The Sheep Farming industry has been in decline for the past decade, as per capita consumption of lamb and mutton has steadily shrunk. . In addition to mild demand for industry meat products, domestic wool production has declined in the past five years as textile producers increasingly chose synthetic fibers over wool. As a result, industry revenue is anticipated to decrease over the five years to 2016.

Lamb is used to define meat from sheep less than one year old, while mutton refers to meat from sheep more than one year old.
