2010 Sheep Industry School

The 2010 Howard Wyman Sheep Industry Leadership School returns to Columbus, Ohio, for a jam-packed program, including the well-known Lamb 509 course, under the direction of Roger High, Dr. Henry Zerby, and Dr. Paul Kuber of The Ohio State University.

The July 10-14, 2010 program combines parts of the ASI Regional Sheep Genetics Conference, Ohio Sheep Day, as well as the popular Lamb 509 program, plus the local tours, networking opportunities, and small group interactions typical of NLFA's Leadership School. The 2010 combined Leadership School is an extraordinary opportunity for anyone involved in the sheep and lamb industry.

Individuals must be 20 years of age or older to apply. There is no fee to submit an application. A written essay is required, along with the name of one reference.  The application deadline is May 1, 2010.  Instructions are available on the NLFA web site at www.nlfa-sheep.org.

A group of 32 participants will be selected by NLFA. Once accepted, participants must submit a $200 per person registration fee  to confirm acceptance. NLFA covers the cost of meals, lodging, and tour expenses; however, each attendee is responsible for the cost of transportaton to and from the Ohio school site.

For more information, contact NLFA at (503- 364-5462 or info@nlfa-sheep.org.
