The Ohio Sheep Improvement Association and Ohio State University Extension have announced the dates and remote locations for the 2013 Sheep and Goat WebEx Programs. The Sheep and Goat WebEx Program was started in 2012 due to an increased demand for educational programming for sheep and goat producers in Ohio and other states. It will take place each Monday in February.

Using WebEx allows one presenter, from anywhere with internet access, to broadcast their presentation to a number of remote locations throughout the state. Sheep and goat producers can pick a location that they prefer and attend one or all of the presentations throughout the series without having to travel many hours.

Contact OSU Extension Personnel at the remote sites with any questions or concerns regarding the program that you are interested in attending, especially in the case of inclement weather. Cancellation due to inclement weather may also be announced on local radio stations. For more information about the Ohio Sheep Improvement Association please refer to its website,, or contact the OSIA office at (614) 246-8299.
