MU Extension Announces American Lamb Consumer And Producer Workshop


The University of Missouri Extension, St. Clair County will hold American Lamb Consumer and Producer Workshop. “The purpose of this workshop is to connect local sheep producers with potential consumers, thereby increasing lamb meat demand, says David Brown MU Extension Livestock Field Specialist”. According to a recent survey, only half of the U.S. population has tried eating lamb.
Ironically, many sheep producers have never tried the mouthwatering savory lamb they raise. The focus and intent of this workshop is to bridge the gap between producers that are looking for ways to boost their production and adventurous consumers seeking to diversify their home cooking cuisine. This combination will increase local sheep production and more profit margin for the producers, says Brown.
