The Small Ruminant Production Conference is an educational effort of the UF/IFAS Central Florida Livestock Agents Group in coordination with South Florida Beef and Forage Group. It is an annual program that has met the educational needs of many sheep and goats producers in Florida for the past five years.
The 2016 Small Ruminant Production Conference this year will be held in two locations: on November 3rd UF/IFAS Lake County will be hosting and then on the 10th of the same month UF/IFAS Extension Hardee County will hold the same program.
Our conference this year will be packed with great information all around for sheep and goat producers.
The topics covered include:
- Genetic Improvement of sheep and goats
- Pasture management strategies
- Milk Production and mastitis prevention
- Alternative marketing
- Animal health
- Animal selection though linear appraisal
