Apply Now For Emerging Sheep Management Program

BROOKINGS, S.D. – Applications are now available for the second SDSU Extension Emerging Sheep Producers Program. The program is for sheep producers who want to develop or improve a full- or part-time sheep operation.

The program will run from September 2023 through August 2024 and will consist of a nine-session course that is a combination of workshops, webinars, hands-on field days and networking opportunities. Throughout the course, participants will receive hands-on experience working with sheep and learn a step-by-step process to develop a personalized business management plan.

Those eligible for the program must be older than 18 years of age with 10 years or fewer of management experience in sheep production. If not currently involved in sheep production, participants must show a strong desire to manage a sheep operation in the future.

Whether a participant has 10 sheep or thousands, the course is designed to mitigate risk and increase overall success in raising sheep. Participants can also expect additional assistance through personalized, one-on-one consultation visits to their own operation or with mentors, if needed.
