If you are new to the sheep industry, or want to learn more about raising quality market lambs, Shepherding 101 – Getting Started can help.  This practical and easy to understand resource was created for people thinking about getting into sheep or expanding their flocks, and serves as an excellent refresher for established producers as well.   The module covers a variety of topics, including: an introduction to sheep, considerations setting up facilities, feeding & nutrition, breeding & reproduction, flock health, marketing, and much more.

This module and the Shepherding 101 – Getting Started course have been created as part of the Resources and Tools project.  Our thanks go to Alberta Agriculture & Rural Development for their assistance and Alberta Livestock and Meat Agency for funding.
