Sheep Canada is a quarterly magazine, packed with technical information to assist sheep producers to increase their productivity or reduce their cost of production. Sheep Canada features articles on health, genetics, behavior, and nutrition, as well as producer profiles, sheep research from around the world, advice for beginners and wool work projects. Sheep Canada is owned and edited by Dr. Cathy Gallivan. Cathy has made a lifelong study of sheep and the industry since 1975. She has worked in Nova Scotia and Alberta as a shepherd and government sheep specialist, and has developed and taught several full-time and weekend courses in sheep production.
After over a decade of using a cumbersome website built solely on hand-coded HTML, Cathy decided to make the upgrade to an easy to use, simple to maintain Content Management System (CMS). Constructed using the WordPress CMS, Sheep Canada’s new website allows Cathy to fully preview her articles before publishing, easily move elements of the site around, host promotions and for the first time access in depth tracking statistics for her site courtesy of Google Analytics.
