About Us

The Sheep Connect NSW grower network is AWI's key investment in extension for the NSW sheep and wool industries.

The Sheep Connect NSW mission is, "To provide NSW sheep producers with a dedicated network through which they can source relevant, reliable and timely information and expertise to enable better business decisions".

The network's objectives are:

  • To deliver timely and relevant information to sheep producers in response to industry requirements.
  • To increase the range and relevance of available information and learning opportunities across the NSW sheep industry.
  • To actively support the delivery of skills and knowledge to the NSW sheep industry.
  • To enhance and share industry intelligence by facilitating two-way communication and cooperation between sheep producers and industry service providers.

Sheep Connect NSW consults with and is guided on strategic direction by a Project Advisory Panel. The aim of this panel is to ensure that Sheep Connect NSW remains connected to and meets the needs of its members by engaging with current industry priorities and opportunities. This panel consists of both producer and service provider representatives.
