A team of researchers is seeking a grant from Northeast SARE (Sustainable Agriculture Research & Education) to address the prevention, treatment, and possible genetic resistance to footrot in sheep. Their plans are to work with farms in the Northeast Region, including Maryland.
If you are a sheep producer that resides in the Northeast, please take the time to complete this short, online survey at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/RHZDTVL by January 27, 2010.
If the project is funded, the team will be seeking farms in the Northeast to participate in on-farm research.
Footrot is one of the most economically devasting diseases affecting small ruminants. Most everything learned in this project will be equally applicable to goats.
