Presenter: Brad Smith

Brad Smith is the WVU Extension agriculture and natural resources agent for Grant County, West Virginian, and the former director of West Virginia Small Ruminant Project. Brad has been involved in raising sheep his entire life and has been in many multi-species grazing projects. Brad, along with his wife, currently run about 150 sheep with 15 goats and seven horses. They practice extended grazing, multi-species grazing and rotational grazing with a goal to graze 10 months out of the year.

This session will discuss how adding small ruminants to your production systems can increase profitability, focusing on the areas of multi-species grazing, herd health, marketing, out-of-season breeding and general small ruminant management.
