Dr. Frank Craddock, Texas A&M University Extension Sheep & Goat Specialist, will direct the next intensive hands-on Howard Wyman Sheep Industry Leadership School set for July 11?14, 2004, in San Angelo, Texas. Attendees will spend three days immersed in an intensive program of lectures, facility tours, farm visits, group discussion and problem-solving sessions designed to help each student develop and improve their own productivity and profitability within the domestic lamb industry.
The school, in its 19th year, is based on the value of understanding how each sheep operation, large or small, fits into the industry as a whole. There is no cost to apply, however, once accepted there is a registration fee of $100, which includes all meals, lodging, tour-related expenses and supplies. Attendance is limited to 25 students who must be 20 years of age or older.
Applications are available from the National Lamb Feeders Administrative Office at 1270 Chemeketa St., NE, Salem, OR 97301-4145 or online www.nlfa-sheep.org. Applications must be submitted by June 1, 2004.
