The objective of the Small Ruminant Conference is to educate producers, educators, veterinarians, industry representatives, and the public on identifying breeds of sheep and goats suitable for meat production in the Southeast. In addition, participants will learn about sheep (new lamb) and goat marketing strategies, farm economics, and biosecurity measures that can be adopted on small farms to increase profitability and sustainability.
