The Merino Sheep is an animal in FarmVille 2, available as soon as Level 9 has been reached. It can be bought from the General Store for 19,500 Coins as a baby or optionally for 28 Farm Bucks as an Adult. The Baby takes 5 Baby Bottles to make it grow up.

The Merino Sheep can be fed every 8 Hours, and consumes 8 Feed each time. It will produce 5 XP, 1 Wool, 1 Milk and 2 Fertilizers.
After 50 Feedings the Adult Merino Sheep will become a Prized Merino Sheep. Now it can only be fed every 18 hours and will produce 59 XP and 1 Fine Sheep Fleece. The Prized Sheep can be sold for 3,800 Coins.
The Adult Merino Sheep is mostly inefficient. It produces Wool worth an average of 6,480 Coins, 250 XP and 30 Fertilizers in total. Feeding it with Strawberries, the Feed consumes 720 Coins and 40 Water.
If the Merino Sheep is sold as soon as it becomes prized it still needs an income of 7390 Coins to amortize. That’s done by using the earned Fertilizer on Crops or Trees that can be sold for at least 247 Coins. Fertilized Cabbage gives a Productivity of 202 Coins per Water. The Productivity maximum is accomplished with feeding Red Pepper and fertilized Cabbage: 267 Coins per Water. But every other fertilized crop would be a loss-making venture with Feed made of Red Pepper.
