Sheep and Goats

WVU Extension Service jointly supports the West Virginia Small Ruminant Project with the Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Design, USDA Wildlife Services, and the WV Department of Agriculture.

The West Virginia Small Ruminant Project, formerly the Sheep Management Project, was introduced in 1998 and is currently being supported through funding provided by the WV State Legislature. The Project’s goal is to help farmers increase the economic efficiency and overall profitability of their small ruminant enterprises through improved production practices and through the introduction of new technologies and to help revitalize this industry in West Virginia.
