Sheep are a good livestock enterprise for youth, families with off-the-farm jobs or existing livestock enterprises seeking diversification. New sheep operations are attractive because individuals can start small and build as they go. Plus, sheep operations do not require large start-up capitol for land, or expansive facilities and equipment. Within a few years new shepherds can expand their flock rapidly and build a sustainable production system. We are hosting this clinic to provide new shepherds with educational material to help them manage their sheep flocks. The clinic also supports the efforts of the North Dakota Lamb and Wool Producers Association’s starter flock program.

Topics:

● Sheep production

● Shepherding equipment

● Sheep nutrition

● Lambing barn management

● Animal-handling techniques

● Tour of Hettinger REC sheep facilities

Lunch will be provided , Sponsored by The NDLWPA
