LONG PRARIE, Minn. — University of Minnesota Extension will host a webinar on Thursday February 18th from 6:30pm-8:00pm CT on how to get your newborn goat kids and lambs off to a good start in life and keep them growing strong. Farmers, 4-Hers, ag business professionals who work with farmers, and those interested in goats or sheep are invited to attend.
Sheep and Goat production in 2021 begins with tremendous optimism and record or near-record lamb and goat prices. Producers are in the midst of lambing and kidding and this webinar will focus on young lamb/kid management. The time of birth to weaning requires attention to detail, husbandry skills, and emphasis on health and nutrition.
Dr. Travis Hoffman, NDSU/UMN Extension Sheep Specialist, Kyle Rozeboom, UMN Department of Animal Sciences Instructor, and Skip Anderson, NDSU Sheep Unit Shepherd will collaboratively provide guidance for lamb/kid processing, beginning rations, and overall lamb and kid health. We look forward to providing insight and the opportunity for dialogue among producers so that we may build a successful and prosperous lamb and goat crop in 2021.
