The influence of behavior on sheep production is not generally well understood or appreciated. There is need for behavior research to evaluate the effects of behavior in production and in experimental designs. The roles of behavior, in both intensive and range management systems, and including such factors as man-animal interactions, predation, reproduction, nutrition and transportation, are areas that deserve more research activity for optimal sheep production.
