You will get the opportunity to learn from skilled deliverers in the areas of leadership and strategic thinking. There will also be opportunity for networking with others from the wool industry, as well as field trips to innovative businesses outside the industry.
Established in 2002 by the South Australian Stud Merino Breeders Association, Breeding Leadership became a national program through the Australian Association of Stud Merino Breeders in 2004. Funding for this program is now provided by Australian Wool Innovation AWI).
