Sheep, goat grazing workshop scheduled


Lincoln University Cooperative Research, University of Missouri Extension, and Crowder College are conducting a “Grazing Workshop for Small Ruminant Producers,” June 7 to 8 at Crowder College in Neosho.

One of the workshop speakers will be Frank Pinkerton, a goat researcher, author, and retired professor and extension goat specialist. Pinkerton will talk about the evolution of goat production and marketing over the last 40 years.

“We are excited to be able to offer this kind of educational opportunity for producers,” said Todd Higgins, workshop director and associate professor. “There are over 5,000 producers in Missouri raising small ruminants. This workshop is designed to have a significant impact on their management grazing practices. This, in turn, may help them lower production costs to have a positive impact their bottom line.”

The workshop consists of two days of classes and hands-on exercises. Workshop participants will hear presentations by grazing specialists, veterinarians and researchers as well as network with other producers. There will also be field exercises, demonstrations and vendors.

The Grazing Workshop for Small Ruminant Producers is open to all interested producers and vendors. There is a fee of $150 for one person or $195 for two. The workshop fee includes a booklet and many free items for the attendees, including meals.
