Ideas for Enhancing Sheep Production

Learn about designing sheep production systems to match animals to resources to markets. Joe will briefly cover breeds, breeding programs, nutrition/health, reproduction, and product quality (meat and wool). If time allows, he will also touch on facilities and pasture management. Raised on a small family farm in Pennsylvania, Joe’s experience with livestock includes managing sheep farms in New York, butchering, genetic evaluation, teaching, and judging. He seeks to help Vermont's diversified livestock farms improve their efficiency, product quality, and marketing. This webinar is sponsored by the University of Vermont Extension New Farmer Project.
