Lamb and Wool Management: Sheep Facility Tours
Sheep Facility Tour - June 4, 2018
The Pipestone Sheep Facility Tour provides producers an opportunity to see various types of sheep facilities, including the latest innovations in sheep buildings, state of the art lambing barns, handling systems, feeding systems and facility layout. The tour will be a full day tour, visiting four lamb and wool producers with new and remodeled facilities. All of these operations have devised their buildings and feeding systems to reduce labor and enable them to run larger numbers of ewes with the same labor. In addition, this tour will also be an opportunity to hear the management philosophy of these four successful sheep operations.
