This study aimed to determine the technical structure of small ruminant farmers in Şırnak province. Data was collected with a survey. The sample size was determined by the stratified sample method and was calculated as 128 small ruminant farms in Silopi, Idil and Cizre districts, where sheep breeding is concentrated. The data was collected between March 2016 and February 2017. On average, farmers own 195.77 decares (195770 square meters), of farmland. Various crops were grown in the enterprises. Wheat, barley, clover and cotton were the most common. In the enterprises, there was 125.14 BAU (Bovine Animal Unit) animals. 99.18% of the animals were small ruminants. 99.22% of the farmers graze their animals in the pasture. Farm animals typically graze from the 22nd week to the 42nd week of the year. There were closed barns in all of the farms. The average size of the barns was 154.95 m2. It was determined that light and ventilation be sufficient. 5560.31 hours of labour was used annually in small ruminant breeding farms, and most of this labour was related to grazing and milking operations. 99.22% if businesses carried out breeding only in certain months of the year. While various diseases were found in sheep and goats, veterinarians were consulted and utilised in illnesses and grafting. There was an average of 621.45 head of mature sheep and goats in the enterprises. The average number of small ruminant animals that produced milk was 830.83 head, which constitutes 64.74% of the total livestock. The mean duration of lactation for goats was 151.51 days; for sheep, 123.20 days. The average milk yield was 0.92 litres per head per day. In the enterprises, 2.09 kg of fleece was obtained per animal per year, on average.
