Best Practices Webinar Recording Available
September 2, 2016

The Best Practices to Increase Your Lamb Crop webinar was presented by Reid Redden, Ph.D., associate professor of animal science and sheep and goat specialist with Texas A&M AgriLife Extension, on Aug. 30 with 170 people in attendance.

"We covered a lot of ground and accomplished our objectives in a relatively small amount of time," said moderator Jay Parsons, Ph.D., with Optimal Ag Consulting.

To assist the industry in making improvements in the national lamb crop, a reproductive efficiency task force developed a factsheet that outlines the 12 Best Management Practices to increase flock lamb crop. Even though farmers and ranchers require different types of management based on resources, environment, labor and other factors, most sheep operations should be able to implement at least a few of the practices to attain a higher lamb crop in the future. The factsheet is available on the Lamb Resource Center at http://lambresourcecenter.com/app/uploads/2016/01/Lamb_Board_Increase_Crop_Fact_Sheet_011416_Web-FINAL.pdf.

Those unable to attend the webinar can access a recording of the event as well as view the slides that were used for the presentation by visiting the Educational Webinars tab on the Resources section of www.growourflock.org.

This webinar is made possible with funding support from the Let's Grow Committee of the American Sheep Industry Association.
