  • accelerated lambing

    Having lambs year round or across several seasons can make your flock more attractive to volume buyers. To learn more about accelerated lambing systems go to the Cornell Sheep Website and under management choose reproduction. This web site is full of info for small and large sheep flocks.

  • seasonal breeders

    Most breeds of sheep and goats are seasonal breeders. Thus lambs and kids may demand a premium price in seasons of the year when they are rare. To find out more about breeding goats out of season check out the herd management fact sheet on the topic at the Cornell Goat Extension Website. Click here to find out how to plan breedings to target specific holidays.

  • No Goats Left Behind
