Like cows, sheep have panoramic vision of 330°–360° when their head is down for grazing.
Sheep can recognize individual human faces – even read their moods – and remember them for years.
Sheep are intelligent – according to University of Illinois they are just below pigs and on par with cattle in IQ.
Sheep are some of the few livestock animals raised for meat, dairy and wool that have never been widely raised inside factory farms.
However, even just a short peek into what happens in big wool shearing operations will convince anyone that sheep do not live a great life compared to the other farm animals.
Like all farmed animals, sheep that are bred experience the heartbreak of having their babies taken away from them. And when they are no longer producing a profit, they suffer the transport and the slaughterhouse.
