Outreach Meeting - Focus on Goats and Sheep

An Outreach Meeting focusing on goats and sheep for small and beginning farmers is being held Tuesday, March 20, at the Traders and Farmers Bank, Bernice Hilton Walker Building (upstairs), 64 Main Street, Double Springs, AL. The meeting is being held from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. 

This program will focus on sheep and goat production, and the use of a a new locally produced mineral that has shown an improvement in animal performance on many Alabama farms (on-farm research data will be shared at this meeting).  We urge any new farmers, small farmers, or just anyone interested in hearing about government assistance to attend.  Several agencies such as the Natural Resources Conservation Service, Alabama Cooperative Extension System, Farm Service Agency, and the Northwest Alabama RC&D Council will be on hand to inform farmers about USDA programs available to them that could help their farm operation.

For more information, call Heath King at 256-383-1446.
