Online sheep courses

The Pipestone Lamb and Wool Program has developed 5 online courses for new and existing sheep producers. These courses provide information that will make your sheep operation more successful.

The online course format allows individual not able to attend Pipestone Lamb and Wool programs due to time or distance from Pipestone to participate in the comfort of their home or office.

The 5 courses offered this fall include:
  • Introduction to Sheep Management (LWMP 1001)
  • Facilities and Equipment (LWMP 1202)
  • Introduction to Sheep Health (LWMP 1300)
  • Ewe Ration Formulation (LWMP 1502)
  • Wool Characteristics and Properties (LWMP 1701)

These courses would be an excellent opportunity for youth and adults to learn more about sheep production within their own home or community. More information on these courses can be found at
