Sheep farming in Argentina

Sheep grazing has become an important part of the effort to protect the environment in the Patagonia area of southern Argentina. CNN's Brian Byrnes recently traveled to the wind-swept landscape of Monte Dinero to visit an Irish-Argentinian sheep farmer and his family.

You can see Brian's report on how the sheep keep these area of Argentina from turning into a desert HERE.

Read Brian's blog about the trip HERE.

Also, be sure to check out his Back|Story where he gives you a little slice of life on the farm around the bottom of South America HERE.
