Funding To Assist Sheep Industry in Production and Marketing

15 October 2014

US – A national sheep industry development facility has been awarded a $1.5 million grant to assist with production and marketing.

The money is part of the US Department of Agriculture’s Sheep Production and Marketing Grant Programme, to be given to the National Sheep Industry Improvement Centre.

Established in 2008, the centre seeks to drive progress in sheep and goat industries through research.

“USDA is committed to working with our partners in the sheep industry to support them as they provide quality products to consumers and increase producer returns here at home,” said USDA under secretary for marketing and regulatory programmes Ed Avalos.

"The Sheep Production and Marketing Grant Program will create new opportunities for growth and innovation within the sheep industry."
