Wednesday, October 8 from 10-1. Hosted by UVM Extension. Joe Emenheiser, UVM Livestock Specialist will center the discussion around designing sheep production systems to match animals to resources to markets. He will briefly cover breeds, breeding programs, nutrition/health, reproduction, and product quality (meat and wool). If time allows, he will also touch on facilities and pasture management
Raised on a small family farm in Pennsylvania, Joe's experience with livestock includes managing sheep farms in New York, butchering, genetic evaluation, teaching, and judging. He seeks to help Vermont's diversified livestock farms improve their efficiency, product quality, and marketing.
