The Oklahoma Meat Goat Boot Camp is a 3-day workshop that combines hands-on activities, classroom exercises, and traditional presentations to teach producers about the production, management and marketing of a meat goat operation.
Production practices include ear tagging, castrating, tattooing, hoof trimming, electric fence building, forage testing, forage production, farm business planning, nutrition, ration balancing, FAMACHA diagnostic testing, determining fecal egg counts, herd health practices, kidding, neonatal care, reproduction and pregnancy determination using ultrasound.
Small class sizes allow for a high level of interaction between teachers and participants. Program participants are allowed to take extra time if needed for the practical exercises.
The registration fee is $200 per person. Participants are responsible for their own rooming arrangements and meals during the camp.
