NDSU Extension to Offer Local Meat Production Webinar Series in May

The North Dakota State University Extension small farms team is hosting a comprehensive and interactive Local Meat Production webinar series scheduled for Tuesday evenings in May. The five-part series will cover topics from production management to customer relations and will help prepare meat and poultry producers to effectively market their products in innovative ways.

An interactive panel discussion and Q&A session will help attendees learn more about how they can produce and market high-quality meat and poultry products in North Dakota.

“It is a mission of our NDSU Extension small farms team to connect producers and consumers, and we feel we can provide expertise across the supply chain for our stakeholders,” says Lindy Berg, NDSU Extension agriculture and natural resources agent in Towner County.

The series begins at 7 p.m. CDT on May 3 and continues for five weeks to provide the full supply chain perspective. Registration is required at http://www.ndsu.edu/agriculture/extension/events/farm-market-webinar-series, and registered participants will receive a confirmation email with the Zoom link.

“This series is perfect for producers wanting to meet the needs of consumers looking to buy locally,” says Travis Hoffman, NDSU and University of Minnesota Extension sheep specialist. “Our goal is to help small farmers differentiate their product, reach production marketing goals, and provide meat, poultry and eggs to consumers who wish to know where their food comes from.”
