The benefits for sheep are well documented. These range from merely keeping a large number of sheep alive in extreme weather conditions to improvements in condition of the wool, increased fertility/conception rates and improved birth rate/ lower infant mortality.
In turn these lead to better prices for the sheep at market as the farmer can make the market when the prices are best for him to do so.

The manufacture and distribution of goat meat is one of the largest meat industries in the world.
A farmer in Victoria, Australia who has 3500 goats insists that fodder fed goats fatten more quickly, have a better coat and have healthier hoofs especially if the season is wet. In addition conception and birth rates are much improved when compared to a diet of normal pasture and dry matter/grain, especially during the winter months.
