Sheep are multi-purpose animals, raised for their meat, milk, wool, hides, and skins.
The most important product we get from sheep is meat. Meat is an important component of our diets, and lamb and mutton supply us with many of the vital vitamins and proteins we need for healthy living. Lamb is the meat (flesh) from a sheep that is less than one year old. Mutton is the meat from a sheep that is over one year of age. The terms yearling mutton are applied to the meat from a sheep that is between one and two years of age.
All of us know at least one woman who seems to age absolutely gracefully, with no signs of wrinkles and little outward aging. You know she has a secret, and chances are, she’s probably using products containing sheep placenta.
The ingredients that make sheep placenta such a celebrated beauty booster work not only because of the quantity and quality of nutrients they offer, but also thanks to the presence of stem cells, which help promote the regeneration of cells in the body, leading to rejuvenated, healthy skin as well as healthier hair.
Sheep placenta has been used for many years to promote general health. It is also typically used by consumers to produce clear and healthy skin, free of wrinkles and blemishes. Although many people disagree on the benefits of this extract, in many areas of the world, it is thought to be a natural way to reduce the toll that age takes on the body.
Wool is the product for which sheep are best known. Wool is widely used in clothing from knitwear such as socks and jumpers to cloth used for suits and costumes. It is used in the furniture trade both for making chair covers and for upholstery. Many of the better carpets produced traditionally and today are made from wool. Wool is used to fill mattresses. It is used in diverse products, such as tennis ball covers, pool table baize, and hanging basket liners.
Sheep skin is commonly used for making the chamois cloth that you wash your car with. A small number of skins are preserved and sold as sheepskins, with the wool still attached. The skins from hair sheep produce the highest quality leather. This is because the numerous fine wool fibers, as compared to the lesser number of coarse fibers of the hair sheep, cause the skin to be more open and loose in texture.
Sheep cheese comprises about 1.3 percent of the world’s cheese production. Some of the world’s most famous cheeses were originally made from sheep’s milk: Roquefort, Feta, Ricotta, and Pecorina Romano. Sheep’s milk is also made into yogurt, butter, and ice cream. The United States is a large importer of sheep milk cheeses. (end)
