History of Lamb and Wool Management (Pipestone Sheep)
Member Producer Program
The Pipestone Lamb and Wool Management Program is a sheep management education/consulting program offered by Minnesota West Community & Technical College located at Pipestone, Minnesota.
The program's goal is to help sheep producers increase income and profit through the production of quality lamb and wool by maximizing the profit per ewe and by realizing the full potential of all sheep through use of
modern management practices, new technologies, and new approaches to marketing both lamb and wool.
The Pipestone System of sheep production revolves around lowest cost feed ingredients, efficient labor use, low input costs, high production levels, and intensive management. The management system is based on
achieving optimum production of a quality product. Maximum profit is more important than maximum production.
Instructors in the program work with sheep producers in the Pipestone area and around the world through the Member Producer Program, newsletters, short courses, tours, and online courses.
