Sheep center awards grants

Glen Fisher, chair of the National Sheep Industry Improvement Center, announced that nine applicants had been offered funding for competitive grants through the Sheep and Goat Industry Grant Initiative.

NSIIC received 26 proposals requesting $1.8 million. All proposals were evaluated and scored in accordance with the solicitation and funding was awarded based on this criteria.

"The board appreciates all of the time and effort that goes into preparing a proposal," commented Fisher. "The competition this year was intense, making the selections difficult. As a board, we believe we have selected projects that will prove to benefit our industries both today and into the future."

Project recipients are the American Goat Federation, Central Arkansas Resource, Conservation and Development, American Lamb Board, Mountain States Rosen, Montana State University and Texas A&M University, National Lamb Feeders Leadership School, Tri-Lamb Summit, South Dakota Sheep Growers Association and Texas AgriLife Research-Texas A&M University. A summary of the projects will be posted to

The primary objective of the grants is to fund a number of diverse projects that will benefit the U.S. sheep or goat industry through product or business development, producer information or education, marketing and promotion for sheep or goats or their products, genetic retention or animal health at the regional, national or international level.

This is the second year of the popular grant program, which is funded by Congress and administered by the NSIIC board of directors to help provide infrastructure capital to the sheep and goat industries.
