National Lamb Feeder Association’s 31st annual Howard Wyman Sheep Industry Leadership School debuts March 12–15, 2017, in Albany, Oregon, located in the heart of Oregon grass seed country. The 2017 School was moved from summer to spring to allow participants to get the most out of seeing the area’s unique grass fed lamb production and marketing systems in operation. Planned visits within a 70-mile radius of Albany, include a startup sheep dairy in Jefferson, a three-year old on-ranch harvest facility, a full service fiber mill in Lebanon, vineyard grazing in Eugene, and a unique variety of both large and small sheep growing operations. An optional tour to the Oregon Coast that ends at Portland International Airport is available for those wishing to stay an extra day.
Registrations are due January 6th, 2017. For more info please visit their website.
