Field day for 'Small Ruminants on Limited Acreage' is Sept. 28

A field day concerning “Small Ruminants on Limited Acreage” will be conducted on 10 a.m. to noon, Sept. 28, at the farm of Tou and Mai Her, 26175 Redbud Road, Stella, Mo.

According to Jodie Pennington, small ruminant educator with Lincoln University Extension, the event will feature hair sheep that have been on 1 acre for the summer.

“Attendees will have an opportunity to discuss factors affecting small ruminants such as sheep and goats on small acreage. Youth are also invited and will have activities,” Pennington said.

This is a joint venture with University of Missouri Extension, Lincoln University Cooperative Extension, Natural Resource Conservation Service, and Crowder College Department of Agriculture.

“This field day will provide producers or potential producers with an opportunity to learn about sheep and goats on small acreage, fencing for the animals, and soil tests and forages for the sheep and goats. ” said John Hobbs, county Extension staff chair in McDonald County. “The field day is designed to show producers how they can make a little extra money on small acreages on the farm that might not otherwise be used.”

For more information, contact Pennington or Verna Simkins at the Newton County Extension Center, 417-455-9500, or penningtonj@lincolnu.edu or simkinsv@missouri.edu. There is no charge for the field day. Advanced registration is requested so speakers know how many handouts to have but registration is not required to attend.

To find the farm from Stella, go a mile north on Highway O and then go east on Redbud Road for a mile.
