Participants 20 years of age or older who are interested in all aspects of sheep production and marketing have until May 1, to register for the July 10-14, 2016, Howard Wyman Sheep Industry Leadership School being held at Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. This intense four-day program will incorporate site tours of exceptional Ohio sheep operations with the Lamb 509 short course taught by Roger High and Dr. Henry Zerby of OSU.

In addition to the site tours, participants will spend one full day in the OSU Meat Lab learning about carcass grading, performing hands-on fabrication of carcasses and processing meat products.

Interested individuals must complete an application form. Applications will be reviewed and 32 participants will be selected to attend the 2016 school. Though there is no fee to apply, a registration fee of $200 is required if accepted. The National Lamb Feeders Association will provide meals, lodging and tour-related expenses. Participants are responsible for their own travel to and from the school location.
