Thank you for your interest in submitting a ram or buck to the 2016 Small Ruminant Evaluation Program! There will be some significant changes in the program this year that we want to make you aware of.
In the past year the WV legislature has not continued funding for the WV Small Ruminant Project, severely impacting our ability to serve producers in West Virginia. One major component of this funding was the support of extension agents in Grant County to oversee our annual ram and buck test. In light of these changes we have decided to move the location of the ram and buck test to Morgantown. Faculty in the Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Design as well as our colleagues in extension are committed to serve small ruminant producers in our state and will provide the support necessary to conduct the ram and buck test this year and into the future.
