Sheep producers serious about turning a profit should plan to participate in any of four upcoming free Production and Financial Benchmarking Workshops.
Four workshops, all with similar curriculums, run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., with lunch included. They are provided through the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service offices in Gillespie, Edwards, Hood and Reagan counties and the Let’s Grow campaign of the American Sheep Industry Association.
“These workshops are dedicated to making sheep and wool producers better able to calculate and interpret key financial and production measures,” said Bill Thompson, AgriLife Extension economist in San Angelo. He and Dr. Reid Redden, AgriLife Extension state sheep and goat specialist at San Angelo, will conduct the workshops.
The workshops will be:
– May 18, Fredericksburg, AgriLife Extension office in Gillespie County, 95 Frederick Road.
– June 1, Rocksprings, Texas A&M AgriLife Research Station at Sonora, State Highway 55 between Sonora and Rocksprings.
– June 16, Granbury, AgriLife Extension office in Hood County, Annex 1, Room 22, 1410 W. Pearl St.
– July 11, Big Lake, AgriLife Extension office in Reagan County, 1430 N. Ohio St.
