Grant Award: $3,000
A young and up-and-coming farmer, Paul has been operating his sheep business for about a year. As he is looking to increase the herd, it has become clear that handling equipment will be needed for him to manage the herd properly. He will be purchasing portable sheep/goat handling system.
With the equipment, he can more effectively care for his sheep and tend to their health care more thoroughly, with less stress to animal and handler. Expected outcomes include higher lamb yields and growth sizes, resulting in higher revenues.
This equipment will also allow for single person operation, which will reduce farm labor.
