Northeast Kansas Sheep and Goat School to be held

Submitted

The term Mob Grazing may seem mean different things to different people, but the benefits to multi-species grazing can be clearing observed when done properly. K-State Research and Extension units from across northeast Kansas will be hosting the annual Sheep and Goat School in Holton on March 13 to discuss this topic and more.

This meeting will feature speakers and presentations to help those involved in small ruminant production or looking to begin a sheep and/or goat enterprise.

Evening activities will begin at 6 p.m. with a sheep shearing demonstration given by Manus Brothers Shearing of Tonganoxie.

Matt Young, Brown County Extension Agent, will cover the management basics of sheep and goat production.

The evening will be cap stoned by JJ Jones, Agriculture Economics Specialist with Oklahoma State University, who will give a presentation on the economics of multi-specie grazing.

Meeting details: Wednesday, March 13, at 6 p.m. at the Northeast Kansas Heritage Complex in Holton.
