Sheep Program

Sheep Program Details

Most of our sheep programs take place in New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia, and Western Australia. Through an Australian Sheep Training Program, you will gain hands-on experience with pasture-fed animals that are kept outside year round. As a Sheep program participant, you will gain hands-on experience in lambing, care, and feeding of livestock, docking (tailing), and more! As part of the sheep program, hay and silage making are generally included. The animals are kept outside, and pasture fed all year round, with supplements such as hay & silage. Lambing takes place from July to October depending on location in Australia.
