November 11, 2016

The deadline for submitting an application to Round Four of the Let's Grow Grant program of the American Sheep Industry Association is Nov. 15.

"There is up to $325,000 available to fund innovative projects of producer groups interested in adopting technologies and management practices to increase sheep farm and ranch productivity and profitability," said Susan Shultz, Let's Grow Committee Chair.

The goal of the Let's Grow initiative is to ensure that the U.S. sheep industry is sustainable for future producers of lamb and wool. Increasing production efficiencies at the farm gate will assist in the sustainability of the industry's infrastructure.

Application forms are available at www.sheepusa.org/Growourflock_Funding_Application. Questions can be directed to Program Coordinator Alan Culham at alan@sheepusa.org or 517-896-7378.
