Getting started with sheep and goat management
Mike Metzger, MSU Extension
Monday, March 2, 2015, 7-9pm
Small ruminants, including sheep and goats, can be a viable livestock enterprise for beginners or established farms wanting to include a livestock enterprise. Conventional lamb and wool markets are options, as well as specialty markets like meat goats, specialty fibers, dairy and craft cheese. This program will introduce you to the opportunities and challenges involved with raising sheep and goats.
These professional development sessions are brought to you by eXtension and are open to anyone.
