Sheep Ultrasound & Carcass Evaluation Course

Carcass ultrasound in sheep production can contribute to the advancement of the sheep industry through the determination of carcass traits. In this course you will learn how to ultrasound three important carcass traits: loin eye area, loin depth, and rib fat. These traits are highly inheritable and therefore, important when selecting breeding stock. Participants will have the opportunity to become a "certified scanner" for the Industry National Sheep Improvement Program.

This event is being organized by the UF Small Ruminant Extension Group and is hosted by the Animal Sciences Department and the school of Veterinary Medicine. The course will be taught by Dr. Alison Crane from Kansas State University.
