Founder

In 1950, Howard Wyman helped organize the National Lamb Feeders Association. He served as president, secretary-treasurer, and in 1986, he began what has become the annual Sheep Industry Leadership School. In 1996, the NLFA Board honored his contribution by renaming the school the Howard Wyman Sheep Industry Leadership School.
