Small Ruminant Talk

At the LSU AgCenter, we strive to best serve producers and industry professionals throughout the state in our programs and on all media platforms. The authors you will be hearing from in this newsletter wanted to bring you, Louisiana’s sheep and goat producers, more information. We hope this quarterly newsletter helps improve management in your flocks and herds by bringing you content from current research and proven management practices. We also have content for our youth producers and 4-H and FFA exhibitors. Throughout each issue you will see articles from livestock and forage extension agents and specialists, 4-H agents, and veterinarians on a variety of topics. We will be producing a Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer issue in October, January, April, and July, respectively.

The Spring 2021 issue of Small Ruminant Talk features the following articles:

  • Goat Kid Development
  • Toxic Plants Affecting Small Ruminants
  • Puberty and Development of Replacement Females for Your Flock or Herd
  • High Feed Prices
  • Results and Judge Feedback from 2021 State Premier Exhibitor Contests
