Ohio Sheep Improvement Association and Ohio State University Extension announces sheep and goat webinar programs

| January 31, 2014

COSHOCTON – In a coordinated effort, the Ohio Sheep Improvement Association and Ohio State University Extension are pleased to announce the 2014 Sheep and Goat Webinar Programs. The Sheep and Goat Webinar Program series was started in 2012 due to an increased need to get educational programming to the sheep and goat producers in the state of Ohio and other states. The Sheep and Goat Webinar programs followed 10 years of “District” type programming. This program offers a wide variety of topics and speakers in most areas of the state of Ohio, but allows the use of speakers from other states, universities, or industry relationships with those speakers attending all of the different sites. In 2014, there are 16 “District” Sheep and Goat Webinar programs offered.

All programs will be offered at the OSU Extension- Coshocton Co. Office at 7 p.m. each evening free of charge. The Sheep and Goat Program Webinar series is sponsored by the Ohio Sheep Improvement Association and OSU Extension and will offer the following:

  • Feb. 3: Roger A. High, The Ohio State University, “The Management Continuum and Success during the Lambing/ Kidding Time Period”
  • Feb. 10: Jeff McCutcheon and Rory Lewandowski, OSU Extension, “Successfully Producing Small Ruminants in a Forage Based System”
  • Feb. 17: Roger A. High and Tony Nye, The Ohio State University, “Sheep and Goat Breed and Breed Types: Selecting the Right Breed Type for your Market”
  • Feb. 24: Dr. Richard Ehrhardt, Michigan State University, “Management and Records – What are the important records to make Key Management Decisions for your Sheep Flock or Goat Herd”

Please contact Tammi Rogers or Emily Adams to RSVP or with any questions/ concerns regarding the program that you are interested in attending. Cancellation due to inclement weather may also be announced on local radio stations.
