These paid grazing contracts present tremendous opportunity for growth of the U.S. sheep flock, improving the availability and price competitiveness of American Lamb, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions through green energy production and biological vegetation management. These grazing opportunities offer current and emerging sheep producers the opportunity to increase their profitability and grow flock numbers.

Training is needed to ensure sheep producers are prepared to take advantage of these grazing contract opportunities. “Improving the sustainability of the US sheep industry through profitable growth is a top priority of the American Lamb Board (ALB),” says ALB Chair Peter Camino, “ALB is committed to ensuring new and experienced shepherds receive education and resources to become successful contract grazers.”

ALB’s grazing workshops are designed to outline new and existing opportunities through targeted grazing across the US including fire suppression, vineyards, and solar grazing.

Producers who attend will have an opportunity to learn about the in-depth process of using sheep to provide a grazing service. From animal performance to contracts and business set-up, the goal is to provide grazers with the tools to be successful service providers and profitable shepherds.

The three grazing workshops in 2024 will be in:

Temple, Texas, May 8th-10th

Roxboro, North Carolina, May 20th-22nd

California, Summer

Attendance is limited to 50 producers per workshop, registration costs $200. For more information and to register contact Camren Maierle at
