What happens to the sheep carcass?

My wife and I were at IKEA last week and noticed a big batch of sheep skins for sale, rather cheaply. I know these are popular for some as car seats and the like, but we got to wondering, what happens to the slaughtered sheep from which they are taken? Do people still eat mutton at all? Whether or not one is a vegetarian, at least leather and similar hides presumably come from cows that are also slaughtered for their meat. But what happens to the meat of sheeps?
