Learn in the comfort of your own home

The Pipestone Lamb and Wool Program has developed five online courses for new and existing sheep producers of which two are offered right now. These courses provide information that will make your sheep operation more successful.

The online course format allows individuals 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 two courses offered this spring (January – May) include: Introduction to Sheep Management (LWMP 1001)and Introduction to Sheep Health (LWMP 1300).

The Pipestone Lamb and Wool Program is a sheep management education/consulting program offered by Minnesota West Community and Technical College located at Pipestone, Minnesota. The purpose of the program is to help sheep producers increase income and profit through the production of quality lamb and wool.
