Sheep & Wool Enterprises

Year 9 and 10 Wool Science classes and Primary Industries students are directly involved in many  aspects of the Farrer White Suffolk Stud. These include shearing, crutching, artificial insemination, drenching, vaccination, lamb plan testing, conducting a ram sale, classing and selection, showing and marketing. Students also maintain a fine wool Merino flock consisting of around 50 ewes. This enterprise focuses on parasite resistance and objective wool production.

Our Wool Science enterprise involving 50 sheep and is used as a comparative program not a meat production enterprise. All management and breeding requirements are carried out by Agriculture Teacher Mr Darren Smith.
