In June 2005, Virginia State University hosted a Hair Sheep Workshop. The workshop was co-sponsored by the National Sheep Industry Improvement Center and the NCERA-190 Regional Research Project (Increasing efficiency of sheep production). The purpose of the workshop was to provide timely, research-based information on the production potential of hair sheep and their role in the U.S. Sheep Industry.
A web site was created to summarize the invited presentations. The web site is being hosted by the American Sheep Industry Association at www.sheepusa.org. To view the proceedings of the Hair Sheep Workshop, click on the RESEARCH JOURNAL icon, then 2005 Hair Sheep Workshop.
