Goat Marketing with Dr. Pinkerton Webinar

April 22, 2021

Dr. Frank Pinkerton, aka “The Goat Man”, has a long and storied career serving the meat goat industry in the United States and around the world. Dr. Pinkerton will discuss basic management decisions that ultimately affect profitability including animal nutrition, ideal market weight, seasonality and timing of marketing goats. He will also talk about the prevailing supply/demand ratios for goat meat, market channels (farm to consumer), and ethnic consumer needs. Additionally, reproduction management tips including estrus induction and synchronization of females will highlight how producers can transition to spring breeding/fall kidding and capitalize on seasonal demands of goat meat (and lamb).
