Richard Ehrhardt, Ph.D., Sheep and Goat Extension Specialist at Michigan State University, will be presenting the webinar titled Accelerated Lamb Production: an Opportunity to Build Markets and Increase Production Efficiency.

Accelerated lamb production is a system of management that allows a ewe to give birth more than once per year. This creates a year-round supply of market-ready lambs. Creation of a steady, year-round supply of lambs is key to building new lamb markets and strengthening existing ones.

By increasing reproductive efficiency (number of lambs produced per ewe per year), accelerated production also has the potential to decrease the cost of lamb production. This webinar will cover the basics of accelerated production, indicate resources required for success, identify constraints to successful adoption and provide management strategies to overcome these constraints.

Funding support for this educational opportunity came from the American Sheep Industry Association and the Rebuild the Sheep Inventory Committee.
