I don't tolerate anything concerning dairy from cows,not even butter:(.....but I do seem to tolerate cheese from sheep. So,I was wondering,as sheep graze outside,if that would mean that (pasteurized) sheep cheese would also be high(er) in Omega 3? There seems to be no raw milk version of sheeps' cheese,like there are from cows,so only pasteurized cheese.
What are your thoughts on this?

This kidn of questions are far from easy to respond, such is wide the array of variables. E.G: are they raised organic? does organic mean grass fed or non-GM grain fed? Does it have acess to pasture? live in confinment?
Its is one of those times that i really feel blessed for living in Souther Europe: here in portugal i have acess to raw sheep/goat hard cheese, from pasture for about 1???(1-2 dollars) a piece, wich is no less then 100gr. Yum

I am a organic farmer here in US I am in prosses to certifed the sheeps organic but i can not find support from cheese makers ,they are telling me that is not enough deamand but in stores at this time i can not find any organic aged cheese made out of raw milk and grass feed .
The cheese made from grass feed sheeps is higher in Omega 3 fatty acids.

Maybe your question should have read:
Is cheese from grass-fed sheep higher in Omega 3 fatty acids than cheese made from sheep's milk where the sheep are fed grain? or something similar.
I would imagine that the answer would have to be in the affirmative. Sheep are natural grazers, that's what they did originally and still mostly do, even if they eat dried grasses in summer.

Note that "organic" and "grass-fed" are not the same thing. Here in New Zealand most stock are grass-fed, but far from organically raised, as the farmers use standard industrial fertilisers and pesticides (albeit under a tough regulatory regime so we can sell to the EU).

And as Felix should know, here in Germany the only sheep that escape being fed beets and other stuff they'd never encounter naturally are those used for mowing city parks :)
