WSU Offers Lamb 300 Short Course
September 7, 2012

Washington State University (WSU) Extension and Departments of Animal Sciences are excited to announce the third WSU Lamb 300 short course that will be offered Oct. 18-20 at the WSU Department of Animal Sciences on the Pullman Campus.
 
Lamb 300 is a three-day, hands-on workshop designed for progressive individuals involved with the sheep industry. The course will focus on teaching producers, feeders and marketers (regardless of size or type of operation) how to produce and market quality lambs and lamb products. Participants will learn how environmental, nutritional, genetic and managerial factors contribute to meat quality as well as how meat quality factors influence the price producers receive for lamb and lamb products marketed through various outlets. This program will increase one's understanding of lamb quality and marketing, enabling participants to make informed decisions to improve profitability, competitiveness and wholesomeness of the livestock they are producing. 
 
Registration fee for the class is $150 per participant, which covers meals, materials and parking. Hotel accommodations will be the responsibility of the participant. The course is limited to 32 and will be filled on a first-pay, first-serve basis. Registration deadline is Oct. 1.
