The 7th Annual Arlington Sheep Day will be held next month at the Public Events Facility of the Arlington Agricultural Research Station. The March 14 program is for adult producers who want to learn more about facilities, grazing and health.

UW-Madison Extension Agricultural Engineer David Kammel will return with a presentation on 'Remodeling Facilities for Sheep.' Gene Schriefer, Iowa County Extension Agent and Sheep and Beef Producer, will present his experiences the last few years on 'Growing Cover Crops for Sheep Grazing.' And Dave Thomas, UW-Madison Professor of Sheep Management and Genetics, will discuss the work at the Arlington Agricultural Research Station in 'Reducing the Incidence of Ovine Progressive Pneumonia.'

Concurrent to the adult producer program in the morning will be a program for youth sheep project members on selecting project market lambs and breeding ewes.

Registration for the Arlington Sheep Day program is $5.00 per person or $10.00 per family and includes morning refreshments and materials. Advance registration is preferred and is available by mail, or persons can register the day of the event at the door for the same price.

The forum will be followed by the Wisconsin Sheep Breeders Cooperative annual banquet, For more information, call the Wisconsin Sheep Breeders Cooperative at 608-868-2505.
