In this project, you will learn a lot about the modern sheep industry either by directly caring for a lamb or by learning about sheep through the achievement program in each level. You may enroll in either a market lamb or breeding project at any level. Youth wishing to enroll in Market Sheep or Breeding Sheep must also be enrolled in Level 1, 2, or 3. If you enroll in the independent study, you must have already completed all three levels of the sheep project and set learning goals for your independent work.
Other events within this project are Jackpot and Lamb Camp.
