April 4 is the date for 2017 Eweprofit III. The Eweprofit Schools are designed primarily for new and prospective sheep producers, although veteran shepherds are welcome if they want to sharpen their sheep management skills. Dates for 2017 Eweprofit I and II are June 6 and October 10.

Participation in all three schools will allow students to come away with a total knowledge of flock management for each period during a calendar year (Flushing/Breeding, Early and Late Gestation, Parturition, Lactation, and Maintenance). Complete management programs for (1) January/February, (2) April, and (3) September/October lambing will be provided.

Participation can begin at any time (Eweprofit I, II, or III).

Each school will be conducted at the University of Kentucky C. Oran Little Research Center Sheep Unit, Versailles, KY. There is no official pre-registration or fee but the school does ask that participants call or email Dr. Don Ely at 859-257-2717, dely@uky.edu to verify attendance.
