Mentoring is an invaluable way to transfer knowledge from the established to the new in any industry. In recognition of this fact, the American Sheep Industry Association has established a mentor/intern network on a state-by-state basis across the nation in an effort to attract and support new producers. As a part of this effort, I published a Mentoring Guidelines document to support new sheep producers coming into the industry and experienced producers trying to help them be successful. These mentoring guidelines are designed to provide a resource for new and experienced producers alike, guiding them in their relationship and highlighting the impact that strong mentoring relationships can have on successful personal and professional development. I encourage you to make use of these guidelines as you build and maintain strong relationships within the sheep industry.
