As usual, this time of year is very busy as we prepare for our annual Goat Field Day and conduct research projects.
This year, the theme for our Goat and Hair Sheep Field Day is Preventing Production Losses and you can read more about it on page 3 of this newsletter. This year our featured speakers will be Mr. Matthew Branan, Dr. David Pugh, and Dr. Jim Keen. Mr. Branan is from the USDA/APHIS National Animal Health Monitoring System in Fort Collins, CO; Dr. Pugh is from the Alabama Veterinary Diagnostic Lab System in Auburn, AL; and Dr. Keen is from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
