The Montana Sheep Institute is a cooperative project between Montana Wool Growers Association and Montana State University. The goals of the Montana Sheep institute are to:
- Improve the profitability and competitiveness of the Montana Sheep Industry.
- Explore opportunities to increase utilization of sheep in weed mangement programs.
The main goal of the Montana Sheep Institute is to develop and implement methods to facilitate Montana (U.S.) lamb and wool producers to increase their competitiveness in world markets. This will be accomplished by focusing Montana Sheep Institute efforts primarily utilizing sheep grazing as a tool in natural resource management, but includes efforts in animal husbandry, management and marketing system areas necessary for a sustained sheep industry. This is a cooperative program between Montana State University and Montana Wool Growers Association.
