Eastern Alliance for Production Katahdins

Symposium & Sale

Annual Symposium and Sale

Promoting the understanding and use of production data for all Katahdin producers.

 

Please join us as the Eastern Alliance for Production Katahdins hosts its first annual educational symposium and sale on July 9th and 10th, 2021 in Abingdon, VA at the Washington County Fairgrounds.

Our educational symposium will begin at 10:00 am and end at 5:00 pm on Friday, July 9th.  We will hold breakout sessions led by experienced EAPK members, industry experts, and small ruminant researchers with topics to appeal to producers of all skill levels.

Lunch will be provided.

We are also planning an auction of quality NSIP-enrolled breeding stock in a unique format.

The classes of sheep to be sold will include:

  • Mature rams two years of age and older

  • Yearling rams

  • Yearling ewes

  • Ram lambs

  • Ewe lambs

  • Pens of ewes/lambs

All consigning and bidding will be handled exclusively online through Willoughby Livestock.  We encourage consignors to bring their animals to the event for bidder inspection, but it is not required.  Attendance and sale bidding will be available for members and the general public.

Stay tuned for more details on both the educational symposium and sale posted in the spring newsletter coming out soon!
