Sheep age

Recommended Posts

Sheep get one pair of adult teeth every year until they are four years old. If the mouth is full, the sheep is at least five years old. From that point on, it's a guess based on dental wear.


I've had sheep live to be productive at age 14, but that's certainly the exception and not the rule. According to the IRS, they have a useful life of seven years.
