Getting Started - Information for new producers

Virtual Tool Box full of the information you need to know to run a successful operation is available from the Canadian Sheep Federation.

ALP's Shepherding 101:Getting Started module gives an overview of the basics of sheep production.

The Canadian Sheep Industry Information for Lenders report was prepared by the Expansion Working Group under the Sheep Value Chain Roundtable. When applying for loans, producers are frequently required to provide general information about the sheep industry. The Lenders Report provides key information regarding production, marketing, economic, and other aspects of the Canadian sheep industry, together in one document.
