UNIVERSITY OF WYOMING HOST LAMB 300 SHORT-COURSE FOR INDIVIDUALS INVOLVED WITH THE SHEEP INDUSTRY

University of Wyoming in collaboration with Superior Farms, Washington State University, and Oregon State University with a grant funding from the American Sheep Industry's Let's Grow Program are excited to announce the sixth LAMB 300 short-course, and first in Wyoming, to be offered November 3-5 2016 at the University of Wyoming Laramie Research & Extension Center on the UW Campus in Laramie, WY.

LAMB 300 is a three-day, hands-on workshop designed for progressive individuals involved with the sheep industry.  The course will focus on teaching producers, feeders, and marketers (regardless of the size or type of operation) how to produce and market quality lambs and lamb products.  Participants will learn how environmental, nutritional, genetic, and managerial factors contribute to meat quality.  Participants will also learn how meat quality factors influence the price producers receive for lamb and lamb products marketed through various outlets.  This program will increase one's understanding of lamb quality and marketing, enabling participants to make informed decisions to improve profitability, competitiveness, and wholesomeness of the livestock they are producing.  Packer, retailers, and chef participation is also encouraged, as each segment gains appreciation for opportunity to improve profitability for all involved in the production of lamb and the quality eating experience for the consumer.  The course will feature nationally recognized speakers in the area of sheep production, feeding, processing, and marketing.
 
The registration fee for LAMB 300 is $120 per participant, which covers meals, materials, and parking arrangements.  Hotel accommodations will be the responsibility of the participants.  The course is limited to 32 participants and will be available on a first-pay, first-serve basis.  Early registration deadline is October 7, 2016, after that time registration will increase to $170 per participant.
