Free Webinar: Grazing Management to Promote Small Ruminant Health

"Grazing Management to Promote Small Ruminant Health" will be presented in a free webinar at 2 p.m. Eastern on Wednesday, Nov. 16. The one-hour session is being presented by the USDA's Natural Resources Conservation Service. Pre-registration not required. Webinar Format: Adobe Connect.

Small ruminants raised in the eastern United States are susceptible to specific health concerns including gastrointestinal parasites. Many of these concerns can be addressed through proper grazing management and forage species selection. Practices and techniques that can sustain or improve sheep and goat health and production will be presented and discussed. Participants will have a better understanding of how using sound grazing management practices can lead to improved small ruminant health.
