Should you name meat sheep is a personal decision… Many farmers number their sheep instead of naming them

Should I Name Sheep if I’m Raising Them for Meat

When raising sheep for meat, you may wonder if you should name your lambs and sheep. It’s natural to be concerned you will get too attached to them by naming them.

Giving them endearing names can make it harder to detach emotionally when it’s time for processing. It can be challenging to separate the animal you’ve cared for and nurtured from the purpose they were raised for.

However, some farmers believe that naming their sheep fosters a sense of respect and connection to the animals. Giving them names can remind you to feel good about how you are caring for them while they are in your care.

The decision to name or not to name lambs and sheep you are raising for meat is personal. It’s a balance between emotions, respect, connection, practicality, and more. 

Naming Meat Sheep

On a personal note, I find it difficult to name any animals I will be eating. If I’m sending them out to be processed and am selling the meat, I find it less difficult and typically name them. I know with the livestock (and chickens) I’ve raised that they’ve had a very good life. 

I also know that when my friends’ kids do 4-H and sell the animals at auction, they also typically name them. They have a personal connection with the animal and cared for them well during their lives. Then the day comes to say goodbye. It’s difficult at first but after awhile they have good memories of their animals that they can refer to by name.
