Agriculture in Greenland I 2/2

Sheep herding developed into the prime agricultural production from 1906, partly with the establishment of the sheep breeding station in Qaqortoq in 1915 and, from 1924, the first Greenlandic sheep farm was established in Qassiarsuk. These new sheep farms often had a cow or two to supply the farm itself and sometimes for sale.

The farmers of Igaliku had cattle, goats and sheep; and their community was based on a combination of milk production and fishing.
