Fall 2020


The New Mexico State Cooperative Extension Service has partnered with the department of Animal and Range Sciences to bring sheep producers a webinar series that will cover reproductive, health, and nutrition management, along with information on how to best market lamb and wool.

The first seminar will cover reproductive management and selection. The goal is to educate producers on reproductive and selection techniques that can help improve productivity in a herd.

The second seminar will provide a standard health management protocol that can optimize herd health and performance. Nutrition goes hand in hand with health, so supplementation strategies both in range and confinement situations will be provided.

Marketing is becoming more challenging for many New Mexico sheep producers. The final seminar will provide insight from industry leaders to help producers find buyers of their products while still achieving good prices.
