The workshop begins at 6:30 p.m. and features two computer programs – Sheep BRANDS and the ISU Sheep Feedlot Monitoring Program, according to Iowa State University Extension’s Beth Doran.
She says the BRANDS program aids in formulating sheep diets; and the Feedlot Monitoring Program monitors and projects the performance of feedlot lambs.
She tells us about the facilitators of the workshop.
The workshop is jointly sponsored by Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, the Iowa Sheep and Wool Promotion Board, the Iowa Sheep Industry Association and the Northwest Iowa Sheep Producers. Computers will be supplied so participants do not need to bring their computers. To register, please call the Sioux County Extension Office at 712-737-4230 no later than this Friday, March 25.
Doran says the workshop is similar to a test drive, and will offer producers a chance to “try before they buy.”
