Sheep Farming in Europe: An Economic Asset for the Continent!
Sheep farming allows for the development of economic activity in disadvantaged regions. Especially in mountainous areas, with its generating of jobs and a local social life. By promoting a region with low economic potential, sheep farming contributes to the maintenance of a strong economy for these non-cultivable or poorly fertilized areas where various plants (grass, bushes and shrubs) naturally grow.
Booming economies, culture, landscapes and gastronomic traditions have all sprung up around sheep farming regions, which in turn, have contributed a lot to the tourist appeal of these territories.
