Choosing Sheep Breeds (Short Course)

100% Online Study

20 Hr Short Course

Any Device, Any Time

Self Paced Study

What to expect:

Choosing Sheep Breeds – a perfect introduction to help you become more familiar with sheep species. This course is a great place to start learning about keeping sheep, or starting your career in sheep farming or husbandry. This choosing sheep breeds short course provides a foundation for understanding what breed of sheep to raise for farming, and how to raise it. There are many thousands of known breeds of sheep but many are old, threatened with extinction or already extinct, or perhaps not even registered. By contrast other breeds are well-managed, well maintained, and registered.

Breeds are often classified according to the purpose they are primarily used for. This may be for wool, meat or dairy. Most sheep are relatively good for more than one purpose (often meat and wool); but few excel at all three.

How does it work?

At the end of each lesson, you will be given a short interactive test to undertake, which will provide an indication of how your learning is progressing. Upon completing the very last lesson, you will be offered a more thorough automated test or examination. This final assessment can be undertaken at any time of day or night; and any day of the week; and if you achieve an overall pass (60% or more); you will be able to obtain a “certificate of completion” with your name and completion date on it.

Note: these short courses are self-guided online courses and are not to be confused with our tutor-supported online courses.
