Sheep producers will learn about live animal evaluation, sheep slaughter, carcass merit and lamb value during the workshop hosted on April 25-26 by North Dakota State University Extension. The interactive event will be held in Shepperd Arena on the NDSU campus. It will run from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on April 25 and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on April 26.
This program is modeled after industry Lamb 300 courses with the addition of utilizing ultrasound measurements from the April 16-17 NDSU Sheep Ultrasound Certification School. Attending producers will receive the chance to “bid” on a group of marketed lambs. They will be able to follow those lambs through harvest, fabrication and taste testing at the NDSU Meats Laboratory.

The cost of seminar is $50. The registration deadline is April 23.
