Good afternoon

In order to have a sheep dairy in Michigan you have to meet basically the same requirements as a cow dairy, with a few minor differences. The place to start is with the local milk inspector (it will be the same person that does the local cow dairies). I most caution you as to making sure you have a market for your milk.
