Sheep Station Celebration Pre-Registration Approaching

July 29, 2016

The U.S. Sheep Experiment Station in Dubois, Idaho, has been serving the U.S. sheep industry for 100 years. To acknowledge this milestone, the station is hosting a three-day event celebrating sheep and range research - Aug. 23-25. The celebration will take place in Idaho Falls, Dubois and at the station headquarters, 6 miles north of Dubois.

Discussions comparing the last 100 years of research to the next 100 years are scheduled, as well as production applications for improving sheep production efficiency. Range tours are planned for Thursday, Aug. 25, where sessions pertain to bighorn sheep, grizzly bear delisting, sage grouse policy and non-traditional grazing resources.

Everyone is welcome to attend all events and sessions; however, pre-registration, which runs through Aug. 5, is required. Program information, along with the registration materials, are available from the www.sheepusa.org home page by clicking on the U.S. Sheep Experiment Station link. Contact information for local hotels is included in the brochure.
