Small Ruminant Short Course

Best Management practices

The Inaugural UF Small Ruminant Short Course was held on September 16-17, 2022. The event was a collaboration among UF/IFAS Extension, the UF College of Veterinary Medicine, the UF/IFAS Agronomy Department, and the UF/IFAS Department of Animal Sciences. We welcomed producers, extension specialists and agents, researchers, students, and allied industry members to attend the in-person, educational event. The program included lectures and demonstrations on parasite control, herd health, marketing, management, and more. Susan Schoenian, Sheep & Goat Specialist at the University of Maryland, brought her industry expertise as the featured speaker. UF/IFAS Small Ruminant Faculty and Staff provided research updates. The event was held in conjunction with the 2022 University of Florida Ram Test and Sale. Thank you to all who attended the 2022 UF Small Ruminant Short Course, and we hope you will join us in 2023!
