Featured speakers in the morning sessions will include, Mr. Matthew Branan, from the USDA/APHIS National Animal Health Monitoring System in Fort Collins, CO, Dr. David Pugh, Director of the Alabama Veterinary Diagnostic Lab System, and Dr. Jim Keen from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.



In the afternoon sessions, 15 different informative workshops will be offered. Participants will have adequate time to attend at least 3 sessions. The afternoon workshops include: internal parasite control, small ruminant diseases, national sheep and goat health studies, basic herd management, nutrition, farm budgeting, discussions with meat processors on types and weights of desired goats and sheep, pack goats, tanning goatskins, cheese making, dairy herd improvement (DHI) training, USDA/APHIS, Wildlife Services, NRCS, NASS, and AMS programs and information. There will also and a half-day of fitting and showing workshop.



Registration for the Goat and Hair Sheep Field Day is FREE but there is a $10.00 per person charge for lunch consisting of barbecued goat meat and delicious homemade goat milk ice cream. You may bring your own if that is your preference. Again, registration is free so we encourage everyone to pre-register.
