Event Details

Intermountain Master Wool Grower

 The objectives of the Intermountain Master Wool Grower Program are to promote the sustainability of Utah sheep producers through use of a comprehensive production strategy and risk assessment program.  Producers first receive training on tools to aide in making decisions such as:  Can I afford to make a range or pasture improvement?   Or, what is the best timing to market my cull ewes?  Producers then receive information on marketing and production strategies.  To reinforce the tools taught participants practice enterprise analysis for an example ranch at the end of each production strategy session. The Intermountain Master Wool Grower Program builds on a similar program that has been offered in numerous Wyoming locations.
