SPRING HILL, Tenn. — An Advanced Master Meat Goat Producer Program is planned for October 28 – 30, 2015, at the University of Tennessee’s Middle Tennessee AgResearch and Education Center in Spring Hill.
  Thirteen topics will be covered that explore every area of meat goat production for Tennessee producers.  


The cost for the program is $200, but with your farm premise ID number and account number the cost will be reduced to $100.

Producers interested in participating in this program should contact Troy Dugger, with the University of Tennessee Extension Office in Hickman County at 931-729-2404 or email Troy at pdugger2@utk.edu


This will be a great educational opportunity for producers as many UT and Tennessee State University Extension specialists will be speaking along with other industry representatives.  Producers will also receive take-home materials that will re-enforce the material presented during this three-day event.  At the conclusion of the program, producers will qualify for a 50 percent cost share through the Tennessee Agricultural Enhancement Program.

Through its mission of research, teaching and service, the University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture (UTIA) touches lives and provides Real. Life. Solutions.
