The market in Florida and South Georgia has grown tremendously these last few years. Whether you are thinking of a pet or hobby farm, breeding stock or looking to increase a flock or herd for meat production, there is a market out there for you.
There will be a meeting for folks considering raising and selling small ruminants. It will be here at Golden Acres Ranch, LLC on Saturday, January 12, 2013, starting at 10:00 AM. The Jefferson County Extension Office and Farm Credit of Northwest Florida are co-sponsoring this program. This meeting is specifically about how to find the best breed for you, how to figure your ongoing investment and how to market the animal you raise. We are limited in space and will be providing lunch, so we need a firm reservation by January 8. Click Agenda to see the program.
