Virtual Sheep Day – Saturday January 9, 2021 – 11:15am – 4:20pm Eastern Standard Time

Sheep Day

Sheep Day is a producer led annual event, targeted to mostly Sheep meat producers, (with limited attention given to milk and wool production at this time).  The purpose of Sheep Day is to provide an opportunity for Sheep producers to meet and be educated on the latest technology; discuss pertinent marketing issues, learn about health/nutrition topics, and much more! Plus, interact and exchange ideas with fellow Sheep farmers.  There are two key objectives that the organizing committee strives to achieve daily.  The information shared will be linked “back to the animal”.  Organizers also hope that producers can implement at least two ideas when they return to their operations.
