Mark your calendars! The American Sheep Industry Association (ASI) will be highlighted on the RFD-TV LIVE show on Monday, Sept. 13, at 7 p.m. Central time. ASI will be promoting the sheep industry and encouraging more production.
Although there are 82,000 sheep producers across the country, sheep production is not top of mind with other producers in agriculture when looking to create a solid business opportunity. With a strong, steady market for lambs since 2002, and now with record prices for feeder and market lambs and the strongest wool market since the 1980s, the sheep industry should be on every farmer/rancher's mind when looking to enhance or diversify his or her agricultural operation.
ASI is funding the program to promote the sheep industry and hopefully expand production to meet the demand for our wool and lamb. Additionally, the program is supported by the committee of sheep producers and the nation's leading lamb and wool processing companies that is working to expand sheep numbers in the United States and is building a plan to encourage industry expansion.
As part of the broadcast, a panel of sheep industry leaders will be answering questions from callers. If you have questions about raising sheep, expanding your flock or how to get started, watch the show to get the phone number to call in your question.
