NMSU Offers Sheep Webinars
The New Mexico State University Cooperative Extension Service has partnered with the De-partment of Animal and Range Sciences to bring sheep producers a webinar series that will cover reproductive, health and nutrition management, along with information on how to best market lamb and wool.
The first seminar will cover reproductive management and selection. The goal is to educate producers on reproductive and selection techniques that can help improve productivity in a flock. The second seminar will provide a standard health management protocol that can optimize flock health and performance. Nutrition goes hand-in-hand with health, so supplementation strategies – both in range and confinement situations – will be provided.
Marketing is becoming more challenging for many New Mexico sheep producers. The final seminar will provide insight from industry leaders to help producers find buyers of their products while still achieving good prices.
The webinars are set for Sept. 21, 23 and 25 at 6 p.m. mountain time. To Register go to the address below. http://aces.nmsu.edu/newmexicosheep/index_preview.html
