FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — A visit to sheep and goat ranches, feed mills, a livestock auction
and more are all on the agenda for a small ruminant ranch tour for Arkansas producers
The tour is being hosted by the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture
department of animal science and will be held Oct. 28-31 in San Angelo, Texas, for
producers who are interested in small ruminant production. The cost to attend is $400
for a single occupancy room and $565 for a double occupancy room and includes lodging,
meals and transportation.
“It’s an awesome opportunity for producers to see what other producers are doing,
especially in more small ruminant focused areas of the United States,” said Chelsey
Kimbrough, assistant professor and small ruminant specialist for the Division of Agriculture’s
Cooperative Extension Service.
Producers will get the chance to visit sheep and lamb operations, show goat operations,
feed mills, livestock auctions, research centers and more, Kimbrough said.
One of the unique opportunities available on the tour is being able to attend the
goat and sheep livestock auction, something that is not as common in Arkansas, Kimbrough
“Participants also get to see other operations, and learn things that they may be
able to implement on their farms,” Kimbrough said.
The deadline to register is Oct. 4. For more information on the event contact Chelsey
Kimbrough at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 501-503-6592. Registration for the event can be found at https://uada.formstack.com/forms/ranch_tour.
