HARDIN COUNTY - The Hardin County Sheep Improvement Association, the Ohio Sheep Improvement Associations, and OSU Extension are pleased to announce the 2013 Sheep and Goat WebEx Programs. The Sheep and Goat WebEx Program series was started in 2012 due to an increased need to get educational programming to the sheep and goat producers in the state of Ohio and other states.

This program offers a wide variety of topics and speakers in most areas of the state of Ohio, but allows us to use speakers from other states, universities, or industry relationships with those speakers attending all of the different sites. In 2013, we are offering programs at 20 sites around the state. Locally, the Sheep and Goat WebEx programs will be presented at the Extension office at 1021 W. Lima Street, in Kenton.

The first program will begin at 7 p.m., on Feb. 4, and continue each Monday during the month. Dr. Eric Gordon, OSU Large Animal Veterinarian, will discuss vaccination programs for sheep and goats. Please contact OSU Extension at 419-674-2297 with any questions regarding the program. Cancellation due to inclement weather may also be announced on the local radio stations.
