COLLEGE STATION, Texas — The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service will be holding a Sheep and Goat Markets Update webinar May 28 at 10 a.m. on the Zoom platform.
There is no cost to attend but participant need to preregister at http://bit.ly/GoatSheepMarkets.
“The sheep and goat market in Texas has been very strong over the past year,” said Reid Redden, Ph.D., AgriLife Extension sheep and goat specialist and Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Extension Center director, San Angelo. “We’ll be providing an overview of recent factors that could explain the current market trends and how that may translate to the future.”
Sheep and goat prices
As sheep and goat prices continue to climb, the webinar will examine what influences, fuels and affects both traditional and nontraditional markets.
David Anderson, Ph.D., AgriLife Extension economist, Bryan-College Station, and Justin Benavidez, Ph.D., AgriLife Extension economist, Amarillo, both with the Texas A&M Department of Agricultural Economics, will be the featured speakers.
Robert Pritz, AgriLife Extension regional program director, San Angelo, said webinars like this serve to keep the industry updated and function as mini expos so that producers may best respond to market changes as they impact the industry.
Texas Sheep and Goat Expo
The annual Texas Sheep and Goat Expo will be Aug. 20-21.
“The Texas Sheep and Goat Expo will have some outstanding seminars this year that will also cover the markets, but this webinar is a way for producers to get ahead of the curve,” said Pritz. “This is an opportunity to better understand what the markets are doing and why.”
