Ninh Thuan is home to sheeps

Ninh Thuan has a harsh climate and the weather in Ninh Thuan is hot all year round but it makes Ninh Thuan becomes the land of sheep in Vietnam.

Sheep in Ninh Thuan

A sheep here weighs 35-40 kilograms when it is about nine months old. Each ewe can give birth to three lambs.

The first sheep in Ninh Thuan were brought in by French people more than 100 years ago. Since then the animal’s population has reportedly increased to around 100,000, mostly in the districts of Ninh Phuoc, Bac Ai and Thuan Bac.

Due to the hot weather, Ninh Thuan sheep are raised for meat and breeding only. Their layer of wool is sadly thin and obviously does not receive great care.

At around 8 a.m. every day, locals herd the animals to grazing fields or hills where they would feed on wild grass. The outdoor activity usually ends at around 4-5 p.m.

The sheep go back to the farm under the storm's landfall 

 

Each family owns tens to up to 200 sheep, and marks their animals with different colors.
