Making More From Sheep
The Making More From Sheep program - a joint initiative of AWI and MLA - is a best practice package of information and tools for sheep producers supported by a range of events and workshops.

This initiative has developed two face-to-face workshops for woolgrowers and sheep producers as well as 12 online modules which cover subjects ranging from soils and pasture to wool and meat marketing, animal health, genetics and farm sustainability.

The Making More From Sheep initiative has created a set of management modules that can be found on the Making More From Sheep website. These modules are based on industry research and development from the past 20 years and include input from over 250 leading sheep producers and technical experts. The modules can be categorised under the headings:

  • Business
  • Resources and pasture
  • Sheep technology

To access the modules visit the Making More From Sheep website.
