L.E. 10th June 2016 @ 07:33 AM Definitely an industry of the past. Oregon City Woolen Mills!!I raised sheep as a kid, but more as a hobby than a business. A huge industry during WWI. Instead of hauling oil, railroad cars hauled sheep.Now, people turn their nose up at the idea of wearing wool or eating lamb and sheep are considered damaging to the environment. I consider them a very versatile animal. Meat, clothing and milk. But not very bright!
