Online sheep management courses

Online sheep management courses are an excellent opportunity for youth and adults to learn more about sheep production within their own home or community. These courses are offered each fall beginning the first part of October.

The most popular course is the Introduction to Sheep Management course.  This course is the online version of the successful home study course that provides an overview of year long sheep management.

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.
