A farmer has 19 sheep All but 7 die How many are left?


A farmer has 19 sheep All but 7 die How many are left?

If a farmer has 19 sheep and all but 7 die, then we need to subtract 7 from 19 to find out how many are left.

19 - 7 = 12

Therefore, there are 12 sheep left.

To explain this, we start with the fact that the farmer has 19 sheep. Then, we are told that all but 7 die, which means that we need to subtract 7 from the total number of sheep. We do this subtraction by taking away 7 from 19, which leaves us with 12. Therefore, there are 12 sheep left after all but 7 die.

What is the slaughter weight for a sheep?

It really depends on the breed, the genetics within that breed that the individual sheep has, the condition/health of the sheep and how much it has been fed, and the target weight the farmer has chosen - a farmer is required to have a STEADY, CONSTANT product, meaning that he doesn't want to sell sheep that all have different weights.Usually, ~56kg for a prime lamb enterprise. As carcass weight is only ~40% of the live animal weight, this would result in a carcass of 24kg.

How do you solve the riddle of wolf sheep and cabbage?

The riddle, for those reading this who haven't heard of it beforehand, goes something like this:A farmer has to get his sheep, a cabbage (or wheat, or whatever), and a wolf (or fox, or whatever) across a river. He has a boat that will take him and one animal at a time. However, if he leaves the sheep along with the cabbage, the sheep will eat it. Likewise, he must not leave the sheep with the wolf, or the wolf will eat it. Everything is fine, as long as he is with all three- but he must take into account both sides of the river and not leave any two of the three mentioned behind together.The animals, cabbage, farmer, and boat are all on one side to start with.Now, if you want to solve this on your own, stop reading!I will give the answer below. And yes, you can figure it out for yourself without too much trouble. The cabbage, naturally, can't eat anything. And the wolf won't eat the cabbage. So, if the farmer takes the sheep across to the other side, no eating will occur. Next, he should go back in the boat (with only himself on the boat, leaving the sheep alone on the other side- which, in this puzzle, carries no risk). He should then take the wolf to the other side and then take back the sheep. The wolf is now alone on one side, and the farmer, boat, sheep, and cabbage on the other. But the sheep, we've established, won't eat the cabbage while the farmer is watching over it. Next, the farmer brings the cabbage to the other side- now the wolf is with the cabbage and the sheep is again alone, but on the side, it started out on. From there, the farmer can just go back, take the sheep, and bring it to the other side along with an uneaten cabbage and a hungry (now disappointed) wolf.

How much will a farmer spend to start a farm?

That all depends on the size of the farm, what that farmer is wanting to raise, and whether the farm that they have bought has the facilities needed to start up or needs improvements.

For instance, the start-up costs for a dairy farmer are much higher than for a sheep or beef-cattle farmer, and even a farmer that is only going to be growing crops.
