Before the winter, check and repair the sheep house as soon as possible, and make necessary repairs to the roof and walls to prevent leakage of wind and snow. For sheep pens located in the wild, corn stalks should be used as a windshield outside the north wall; for closed sheep pens, grass curtains should be hung at the door and windows; for simple sheep pens, the eaves can be extended forward and a plastic warm shed can be erected , The top surface is covered with grass curtains. When it is too cold, a stove should be built in the pen to keep warm.
