We employ professional Sheepherders. We provide them with everything they need to shepherd our sheep in all types of grazing conditions.
- Our herders come to work in the US on an H2A visa from Peru, we also hire American Sheepherders. They are allowed to work here for three years and then must return to Peru for tree months before returning for another contract of three years.
- Their main task is to provide protection and herding of the bands of sheep. A band of sheep is anywhere from 800 to 1000 or more ewes and during the summer they would also have their lambs with them.
- While on the grass-circles our herders put up and take down all the fencing required for grazing and haul water to the sheep. Their main task of course is to watch over the sheep and provide protection and doctor any sheep in need.
- It is very important to have highly experience herders during lambing season. We require 2-3 herders for lambing. Lambing is a 24 hour operation.
