We’ve been overwhelmed with responses, and general registrations are NOW CLOSED for our More Lambs More Often workshop!

 

However, we have a few UNDER 25s places left at the workshop, so if you are under 25 years old, register now before they disappear too.

 

We welcome high school students and young producers who want to learn and develop their skills, so if you aren’t under 25 but you have a family member who is, why not send them along to learn how to bullet-proof your business!
