Herdict Team Buys a Sheep!

As the holidays near, like many of you, we here on the Herdict Team are thinking about those less fortunate than us…so when the perfect opportunity to give came up, we couldn’t resist:


Heifer International allows you to supply a sheep for wool to a family in need

The Herdict Team chose to contribute a sheep, via Heifer International, to a family in need. As the Heifer International web site states, “Entire communities depend on wool and meat from sheep. Struggling families use sheep’s wool to make clothes, or sell it for extra income. Sheep often give birth to twins or triplets and can graze even the hilliest, rockiest pastures unsuitable for other livestock.”

We’re pretty sure our own mascot, Shep, would approve!
