The Sheep for Profit School is a professional management and business school for the sheep industry. The purpose of the school is to help producers improve sheep management skills; increase the profitability of sheep operations and form relationships in the business. The school will be intense and combine lectures, group discussions, and visits to outstanding Pipestone area sheep operations.
