Can Sheep Eat Fir Trees

There’s a lot of debate on this topic. Some say that sheep can eat fir trees, and some say they can’t. There isn’t a clear consensus, but we’ll try to sort out the facts.

Sheep are grazers, which means that their diet consists mainly of grass. They also eat other plants, including shrubs and herbs. Fir trees are not part of their natural diet.

However, that doesn’t necessarily mean that sheep can’t eat fir trees. If there’s no grass or other food available, sheep will eat just about anything, including fir trees. In fact, during winter, when food is scarce, sheep will often eat the bark of fir trees.

There are some risks associated with eating fir trees, however. Fir trees are high in resin, which can be harmful to sheep. Resin can cause digestive problems and can even be toxic in large quantities.

So, can sheep eat fir trees? The answer is yes, but it’s not recommended. If there’s no other food available, sheep will eat fir trees, but they may suffer from digestive problems as a result.
