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 Fall 2021 issue of Small Ruminant Talk features the following articles:

  • Body Condition Score of Goats and Effects on Gestation
  • 4-H Exhibitors: How to Prepare for Premier Exhibitor Contests
  • The Top 10 Things You Need to Know About Goat Pneumonia
  • Preparing Meat Goats for the Breeding Season: What Other Measures Will Increase Reproductive Performance?
