Alcorn State University in Lorman, MS will be hosting a field day on Small Ruminate Production on June 1, 2019. Speakers will include Dr Maria Leite-Browning DVM (Alcorn State University), Dr Richard Browning Jr Ph.D. (Tennessee State University), and several other great speakers! This will be a great opportunity for anyone wanting to learn about the ever growing meat goat industry.
In addition to all of the great info, Dr Maria Leite- Browning will be announcing the long awaited Alcorn State University Buck Test tenatively scheduled to begin in 2020. There will be an opportunity to tour the facilities and review the test protocol. I encourage all regional producers, who can make it, to attend.
This would be a great opportunity to show the university that there is strong regional support for the Alcorn State University Buck Test. Joseph Knetter of Wistlin Dixie Kikos and Phillip Wilborn of Just Kiddin Caprines have been working with Dr. Maria for nearly 2 years to establish the groundwork for this very important test to be conducted in the parasite-harsh Southeastern United States.
