2009 ASI Industry Survey


In December 2009, the American Sheep Industry Association (ASI) membership was sent a survey as part of an ongoing national effort to assist the newly formed Re-building the Sheep Inventory Committee, which is working to strengthen U.S. sheep production.

This information reflects the results of the completed surveys that were received by the ASI office as of Jan. 11, 2010, which was the deadline. Of the 7,394 surveys that were mailed, 1,640 were entered into the survey program, which is a response rate of 22 percent.

These documents provide a general overview of the results.

Series 1: Profile of the Average Sheep Producer in each ASI Region
Series 2: Revenue Needed for Sheep Producers to Expand Flocks

Survey Results to Include: Individual Sheep Production Information, Sheep Industry Expansion, Farm/Ranch Purchases and Livestock Protection
