Michigan Flock Survery

The inaugural Michigan Flock Survey will attempt to survey every sheep and shepherd within the state of Michigan in 2019.  This anonymous survey will help determine the demographics of our shepherds, the vast range of breeds they are raising, and what challenges they are facing.

Participants are wanted.  Fill out the survey online at www.MichiganFlockSurvey.com
