Episode 251. She’s Raising Sheep: California Shepherd Lani Estill

Lani Estill has built a good life and strong business around fine-wool sheep on the California-Nevada border. Far from a one-woman enterprise, running 3,000 Rambouillet sheep across a half-million acres of public and private lands involves Lani’s family and contract herders.

This episode of Voices from the Field is part of our “She’s Raising Sheep” series. Lani tells NCAT Grazing Specialist Linda Poole about her journey — first raising sheep, then teaching kids about wool, followed by developing her successful wool business, Lani’s Lana.
