Kansas State University Department of Animal Sciences and Industry & Research and Extension along with a special grant from Kansas Farmers Union-Amazing Grazing II for Ruminants both Great and Small present KState Sheep Producer Day on Saturday, March 7, 2015. The day will feature Mr. Alan Culham, American Sheep Industry Association (ASI) Let’s Grow Coordinator addressing topics related to managing a lambing barn and dealing with lambs and ewes. Alan will also discuss his new role with ASI and what we as producers can do to grow our own flocks and ultimately the national flock size. Mr. Dale Strickler, Star Seed, will be available to address alternative, supplemental, and drip-irrigated forages and how they can impact producers. Dr. Brian Faris will conclude the day’s educational program with a discussion related to improving lambing and weaning percentages. The Kansas Sheep Association will have their annual business meeting following the educational programs. A wonderful lamb lunch will be served to all paid participants. The event will be held at K-State Sheep & Meat Goat Center at 2117 Denison Avenue; Manhattan, KS 66502. While this event is targeted at sheep producers, I feel goat producers could gain also a great deal from these talks. Please contact Dr. Brian Faris, K-State Extension Sheep & Meat Goat Specialist, if you have any questions at 785-532-1255 (w), 785-313-4918 (c), or firstname.lastname@example.org. To register, contact Lois Schreiner at 785-532-1267 or email@example.com. We look forward to seeing you at K-State Sheep Producer Day.
