Sheep & Meat Goat Center

2117 Denison Avenue
Manhattan, KS 66506

Description

A number of educational opportunities are available in the sheep and meat goat program in the Department of Animal Sciences and Industry at K-State. Undergraduate courses are offered that expand the students’ knowledge of sheep and meat goat production. Students gain hands-on experience via laboratories and student worker positions at the K-State Sheep & Meat Goat Center.

The educational offerings capitalize on a close working relationship with Veterinary Medicine faculty and shared responsibilities in various classes such as Production/Medicine of Small Ruminants. The Kansas State University Department of Animal Sciences & Industry completed the initial phase of the new Sheep & Meat Goat Center on December 15, 2011. This facility will continue to be used as a teaching unit for students as well as a place for extension-based producer education programs to be held. We are currently trying to expand the research conducted at the Sheep & Meat Goat Center. The idea of an undergraduate research program is currently being explored.
