We believe this nationwide response will add value by identifying collective producer strengths and struggles to cooperatively strengthen Extension program efforts," says Kelly Froehlich, Assistant Professor and SDSU Extension Specialist in Small Ruminant Production. "This year provides a timely opportunity to gather producer preferences on production and management topics and program delivery as well as identify challenges to raising and marketing these animals, and finally to learn more about farm and ranch demographics."
