NLFA Leadership School in Ohio
Participants 20 years of age or older who are interested in sheep production and marketing have until May 1 to register for the July 10-14 Howard Wyman Sheep Industry Leadership School being held at Ohio State University. This intense four-day program will incorporate site tours of exceptional Ohio sheep operations with the Lamb 509 short course.
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.
Interested individuals must complete an application form. Thirty-two participants will be selected to attend. 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.
Apply electronically at NLFA-sheep.org/leadership.html or an application may be downloaded and returned by mail or fax. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 503-364-5462.
