Master Goat Producer
QUINCY, Fla. — Certification as a Master Goat Producer is being offered in May through the extension arm of Florida Agriculture and Mechanical University.
Four day of classes May 14-15 and May 28-29 will cover topics on small ruminants, management and profitable goat and sheep production.
The course is followed up with a farm inspection and exams can be taken online. Those interested in the information, but not the certification, also can take the course (for those of you not thrilled about exams.)
To learn more or register, contact Joy Dixon at 850-875-8555 or email@example.com.
Eds. Note: We learned about this through the Meat Goat Blog, which notes a huge increase nationally in seminars and classes about raising goats.
As the Meat Goat boys write: “Goats are not small cows, nor are they large dogs! … If you are just getting started, save yourself some money and a lot of headaches by attending some of these educational opportunities instead of learning the hard way like some of us do!”
