62nd Spooner Sheep Day, Aug. 16

July 8, 2014 | 0 comments

SPOONER

The 62nd Spooner Sheep Day will be held at the Spooner Agricultural Research Station on Saturday, Aug. 16. The Spooner Sheep Day has a long tradition of providing useful information to the state's sheep producers and is the longest-running agricultural field day of the many held each year by the University of Wisconsin-Madison, College of Agricultural and Life Sciences.

Registration will begin at the station headquarters at 8:30 a.m. with the program ending at approximately 3:30 p.m.

Dr. Reid Redden, Sheep Extension Specialist, North Dakota State University, will be the featured speaker. He will discuss his experiences with estrous synchronization of ewes. This is a useful technology to consolidate the lambing season and to induce ewes to lamb in the fall of the year. As chairman of the National Sheep Improvement Program, Dr. Redden will also discuss the many advantages that can come to both purebred and commercial producers from using the estimates of genetic value available from this program.

The morning program will round out with presentations on economical feeding of the ewe flock by Rusty Burgett, the new Spooner Station sheep researcher and a discussion of estimated breeding values (EBVs) by Tom Murphy, Animal Sciences Ph.D. graduate student.

The afternoon program will be held at the sheep barn and will include evaluation of market lambs, a discussion of the disease of caseous lymphadenitis, and a walk through the kura clover-orchardgrass pastures. The complete program can be viewed at the UW-Madison Small Ruminant web site: http://fyi.uwex.edu/wisheepandgoat/.

A lamb lunch will be served at noon at a cost of $8.00 per adult, $5.00 for children ages 5-11, and free for children under 5. Advanced reservations are not required. For more information, contact Lorraine Toman at the Spooner Agricultural Research Station (715-635-3735, lltoman@wisc.edu) or Dave Thomas on the UW-Madison campus (608-263-4306, dlthomas@wisc.edu).

The Spooner Sheep Day is sponsored by the Department of Animal Sciences and the Agricultural Research Stations of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, College of Agricultural and Life Sciences, and Cooperative Extension of the University of Wisconsin-Extension.
