This is a resource about improving the wellbeing and productivity of Australian sheep. It consists of a unit of work and two Precision Sheep Management data sets (one with answers). It is accompanied by a video of the same title about the process a research program at the University of New England collects data on individual sheep. The unit of work sets out four student activities that explore: the role and value of research in primary industries; background on the Australian sheep industry; productivity impacts and improvements in today's global economies, and the role and deployment of data in precision sheep management . The fourth activity includes a culminating project to plan and suggest a designed solution to help sheep farmers improve their production management systems. The unit provides background information, pedagogical advice and a list of online resources for teachers as well as detailed task sheets for students.
