2013 Sheep and Goat Web Programs

January 14th, 2013 · 4 Comments

In a coordinated effort, the Ohio Sheep Improvement Association and Ohio State University Extension are pleased to announce the 2013 Sheep and Goat WebEx Programs.  The Sheep and Goat WebEx Program series was started in 2012 due to an increased need to get educational programming to the sheep and goat producers in state of Ohio and other states.  The Sheep and Goat WebEx programs followed 10 years of “District” type programming.  This program offers a wide variety of topics and speakers in most areas of the state of Ohio, but allows us to use speakers from other states, universities, or industry relationships with those speakers attending all of the different sites.  In 2013, we are offering 20 “District” Sheep and Goat WebEx programs.

The Sheep and Goat Program WebEx series is sponsored by the Ohio Sheep Improvement Association and OSU Extension.  With each of the programs we have provided a program date, the remote site program locations, the time, the speaker and topic, as well as any contact information for the key OSU Extension Personnel responsible for the educational program at each remote county location.  Please contact OSU Extension Personnel at the remote sites with any questions or concerns regarding the program that you are interested in attending, especially in the case of inclement weather.   Cancellation due to inclement weather may also be announced on local radio stations.
