Pasture for Life have been leading the research into pasture-fed sheep farming, showcasing how it can be done. This observational research looks at how a number of sheep farmers in different regions of the UK with different systems, soil types and flock sizes are able to feed 100% pasture. These Sheep Case Studies focus on a number of topics, from land management (grazing and infrastructure) and animal welfare (ewe nutrition and condition), to biodiversity and economic benefits.

1. Clive and Lydia Handy, Lower Hampen Farm, Andoversford, Gloucestershire
