MADISON - The long-running annual Sheep Management WisLine teleconference series will be held from 7:30 to 9 p.m. on Jan. 8, Feb. 5, and Mar. 5 in 2009 at WisLine sites in many County Extension Offices throughout the state of Wisconsin.The topic for the first program on Jan. 8 will be "Recommendations on Sheep Breeds for Different Production Situations" presented by Dave Thomas, Extension Sheep Specialist, UW-Madison. This program will divide the more than 50 breeds of sheep now found in the U.S. into groups with similar performance levels for the production traits of reproduction, growth, milk production, fleece quality, and carcass merit so that producers and youth project members can select the best breeds to meet the goals of their flock or sheep project.
