   According to local authorities, usually entrepreneurs buy young sheep coming down at autumn crossing from alpine meadows from farms of Charodinsky, Tlaratinsky districts, or acquire livestock in neighboring Obstetrinsky or in Levashinsky district itself. 5-7 month-old youth are sent to indoor maintenance for several months. In a short time, with proper care, animals gain weight well. Traditionally lamb of Levashinsky district goes to markets of Dagestan cities, as well as large Russian cities.
Today, demand for Dagestan lamb has also been marked in Iran and Azerbaijan, Turkey and other Muslim countries. This situation of the sheep breeding industry encourages more entrepreneurs to feed sheep.
