Goats and Sheep @ eXtension is an internet-based, collaborative environment where Land Grant University content providers exchange objective, research-based knowledge to solve real challenges in real time. It was launched in 2007.

eXtension is organized into Communities of Practice (CoP). Each CoP includes articles, news, events, and frequently asked questions.  Specialists and others who are knowledgeable in the subject area contribute to the CoP

The Goat CoP was one of the first CoPs to be established. It was started in 2008. The Goat CoP provides online learning lessons, videos, publications, frequently asked questions, and other resources to help users learn about all aspects of the goat industry.

The Sheep CoP was recently launched. The purpose of the Sheep CoP is to transfer knowledge regarding sheep production and products to producers, stakeholders, and consumers. The Sheep CoP  covers a wide variety of topics of interest to the sheep industry.

Other CoPs that may be of interest to sheep and goat producers include:
