If you are new to raising sheep, or if you would like to start raising sheep, but would like some advice from an experienced shepherd, contact MLWPA today and receive information on our mentor program.
MLWPA will connect you with an experienced sheep producer in your area who will mentor you as begin raising sheep. The mentor will provide tips and advice via email and/or telephone. In addition the mentor will come to your farm at least once to review your facilities and management plan and provide additional advice. This mentoring is a free service. The only requirement is that the mentee become a member of the MN Lamb and Wool Producers Association.
If you need assistance in locating a source (or sources) of sheep to start your flock, MLWPA volunteers can help you with that as well. Join our flock today.
