" I used to have 450 sheep but with low milk production. After exchanging some of them with better quality sheep from Al Khansarah station and reducing the number of my flock to 300 sheep, the milk production increased, I used to get from one sheep approximately 350 milligrams of milk, now I get up to 1 to 1.5 litres thanks to the program and the constant help of the SIGHT project, now even because of the quality of my sheep I have a lot of requests to export to other countries."
