Are you currently raising small ruminants (goats and sheep) or maybe you are interested in getting started in the small ruminant business?

The University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture County Extension offices in Cleburne, Independence, Searcy, Stone, and Van Buren counties have scheduled a Small Ruminant Conference to be held at the Stone County Fairgrounds in Mountain View 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday Nov. 30.

You will not want to miss this conference. The conference will begin with registration at 9 a.m. and will conclude by 3 p.m.

The topics that are being planned include Forages for Small Ruminants, Flock Health, Marketing, Fencing for Goats and Sheep all to be covered before lunch, and after lunch, there will be an optional Famacha/Fecal Egg Count training that will last about one-and-a-half hours. The Famacha training will have a cost payable the day of the training.

We have a great lineup of speakers including our own specialists, county agents and an area small ruminant producer.

There is limited seating for this program. Please call the Cleburne County Extension office at 501-362-2524 to preregister so we can ensure you get a seat for the conference.
