Distance-delivered sheep courses

The Pipestone Lamb and Wool Program is currently taking registration for five distance-delivered courses. The most popular distance-delivered course is the Introduction to Sheep Management (LWMP 1001) course. This course is offered through the mail or as an online course. It provides an overview of year-long sheep management.

Other online course offerings include:  Equipment and Facilities (LWMP 1201), Introduction to Sheep Health (LWMP 1300), Ewe Ration Formulation (LWMP 1502), and Wool Characteristics and Properties (LWMP 1701).

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 (October-December) and Spring (January-April).

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.
