All Wool and a Yard Wide


The expression ‘all wool and a yard wide’ refers to something that is genuine and of real quality. When buyers look for wool they seek the highest quality possible. Wool has always been a strong export product demanding high prices in favourable markets. But how do you ensure that the wool you produce is good enough for export? You could no worse than study the recently updated course in Sheep Management provided by ACS Distance Education. This valuable course demonstrates why sheep husbandry is more than just a woolly idea by enabling you to develop your ability to analyse and make decisions about sheep management. It also discusses the pros and cons of dual purpose breeds which can provide both meat and wool thereby hedging your bets should there be an overproduction one of the two products. Other important aspects of sheep husbandry are also addressed including; dairy products, selection and breeding, nutrition, diseases, lamb care, and product marketing.
