Northeast footrot survey

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 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.
