Sheepherders usually have a sheep dog to help them move the sheep from place to place and to serve as a compaion to them in their lonely job.
Sheep are raised for their wool and for their meat. There are also by-products such as lanolin (which is found in many lotions) and sheep pelts (which can be tanned with or without the wool left on and then made into a variety of leather items.)
The person who looks after the sheep is called a sheepherder . The sheepherder stays in a sheepwagon which is a self-contained home-on-wheels that can be pulled from place to place, following the sheep as they move to graze.
