The Howard Wyman Sheep Industry Leadership School (HWSILS) offers a continuing education opportunity for individuals in the sheep industry. As landscapes and businesses change, it is imperative for animal agricultural industries to not only learn about the changes but be able to adapt to keep their businesses and the industry viable. The HWSILS bridges the gap and provides regular education programs and tools to support the current generation as well as the next generation of lamb producers in the US. In addition, by moving the program to different locations each year, the participants are exposed to differences in lamb production by region, offering opportunities for improvements in their own production and growing programs. For 2020, NLFA will more closely align with the American Sheep Industry Association and American Lamb Board and the Young Entrepreneurs program to provide an enhanced educational opportunity for even young sheep industry leaders.
