Event description
Join us for a hands-on workshop related to small ruminant productivity and enterprise profitability.

About this event

This workshop will include both classroom sessions and hands-on experience on a producer's operation. This FREE event will cover tools and management principles needed to improve productivity and profitability of small ruminant operations. Recent investments in North Carolina meat processors have resulted in increased slaughter capacity and demand for small ruminants. Opportunities exist to expand small ruminant production to meet this market demand. Join us to learn more about optimizing management strategies to achieve greater production.
