Roger High, director of livestock, Ohio Farm Bureau, and executive director, Ohio Sheep Improvement Association (OSIA) and Ohio Sheep & Wool Program (OSWP), will provide an update on statewide initiatives to increase the sheep population and producer profitability. The event is hosted by the Center for Innovative Food Technology (CIFT).
Decades serving Ohio, the OSIA works in coordination with the OSWP to provide promotion, education, research and services to the sheep industry. The organizations host many activities including the Ohio State Fair’s “Taste of Ohio Café” (one the largest lamb promotions events in the U.S.), Ohio Sheep Day, Make-It with Wool Contest, scholarship programs, lamb shows, breed workshops, and countless symposiums and assemblies.
A lifelong farmer at his own sheep operation in Union County, High is an expert in the industry, delivering programs, supporting producers, and providing education and resources to operations across Ohio.
