Apply Now for the NLFA Leadership School
March 30, 2018

Applications are now available for the 2018 Howard Wyman Sheep Industry Leadership School, presented by the National Lamb Feeders Association. This year’s school is scheduled for July 8-11 in Sioux Falls, S.D.

“We’re excited to bring the leadership school back to South Dakota this year,” said NLFA President Bob Harlan, a sheep producer from Kaycee, Wyo. “This year, we plan to bring the school back to its foundation, combining educational programs with case studies to engage participants in addressing industry challenges.”

Attendees will also be tasked with seeking solutions to current industry challenges through a series of case studies.

“One aspect of being a good leader is critical thinking, and we’ll ask the leadership school participants to apply their critical thinking skills to develop creative solutions to challenges our industry is facing,” stated Harlan. “It will also be an opportunity for current industry leaders to gain a new perspective from future leaders.”

The application deadline is April 30. Applications are available on the NLFA website at For more information, contact the NLFA office at 605-224-0224 or
