Livestock

Livestock production has seen abundant growth over the past 10 years. The land in our 5 county area is prime for grazing and making feeds for all forms of livestock. We work with livestock farms including beef, sheep, goat, hog, horse, and poultry producers.

The size of non-dairy livestock farms can range from the back yard “hobby farm” to the small scale “diversified operation” all the way to the full time “main income” farm, and we’re happy to work with them all.

The Non-Dairy Livestock program focuses on Management, Production, and Marketing opportunities for livestock producers. Educational information, technical service, workshops, tours, newsletters and one on one consultation are all available to livestock producers of any size. Contact us for help with:

  • Marketing
  • Herd Health
  • Nutrition
  • Herd Management
  • Handling Facilities
  • Finance/Budgeting

For help with livestock production and to receive the Livestock Ledger newsletter, contact Heather Birdsall, livestock specialist.
