Regional goat meeting coming soon

Monday, February 22, 2010

The Purdue University Regional Goat Meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. March 3..

Mike Neary, Purdue Extension small ruminant specialist, will speak on feeding programs for meat goats. Regional grazing specialists from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Natural Resources Conservation Service will speak on March 3 at Greencastle Courthouse Annex Building, 209 Liberty St., Greencastle

Mark Kepler, educator, Purdue Extension Fulton County and coordinator of the meeting, said the workshop is intended for producers with large or small operations and those who are considering raising meat goats.

"We're beginning to see the number of meat goats increasing in Indiana, and the numbers have increased nationwide over the last several years," Kepler said. "There's more demand for using on acreage and working with an animal that's smaller." No registration is required. And the workshop is free. Please join us for this great workshop. For more information, contact Kepler at 574-223-3397. Information on these programs can be seen at
