Sheep are a favourite gift of farming families around the world. That’s because sheep can provide plenty of rich and nutritious milk for children to drink, plus wool which can provide opportunities for families to make blankets.
How this gift helps
Giovanna, an 11-year-old from Bolivia, goes to school with a bounce in her step thanks to a daily breakfast rich in nutritious sheep’s milk. Although it is less common than milk from cows or goats, sheep’s milk has one of the highest concentrations of essential nutrients. It boosts immunity, aids growth and development, fights cancer, regulates blood pressure, improves bone density and helps lower cholesterol. Not baaaaaad from a little woolly friend.
