Missed the Sheep Milk Production Webinar - Catch it Online
March 17, 2017

Optimal Ag Consulting's Jay Parsons, Ph.D., worked with David Thomas, Ph.D., professor of Sheep Management and Genetics in the Department of Animal Science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison to present the webinar Is Sheep Milk Production in Your Future? The March 14 event was attended by 135 people representing 38 states and five Canadian provinces. The live audience represented an estimated 90 women and 45 men.

Attendees were engaged, asked several questions and commented after the session that the information was helpful in making a decision to convert to a sheep dairy and to understand the difference between the East Friesian and Lacaune breeds.

If you missed the webinar, the recording and presentation slides are available through the Let's Grow Program's website at www.growourflock.org. Clicking on the Resources tab and then the Educational Webinars tab.

Mark your calendar for the next Let's Grow webinar on April 25 when Travis Hoffman, Ph.D., North Dakota State University and University of Minnesota, will talk about lamb meat quality.
