Virginia State University's College of Agriculture Isn't Sheepish about Lambuary!
The objective of "Lambuary" 2016 is to assist Virginia sheep farmers in tackling their two major business obstacles: consumers’ lack of knowledge on how to find local sheep farmers and their products, as well as their unfamiliarity with how to prepare lamb meat.
For the month of January, VSU College of Agriculture Cooperative Extension specialists Dr. Dahlia O'Brien and Dr. Theresa Nartea will partner with VSU Agricultural Research Station Sheep Researcher, Dr. Stephan Wildeus and VSU Department of Hospitality Management's Chef Jeff Chapman and Dr. Michelle Mosely, to launch an interdisciplinary program called "Lambuary" to help grow Virginia’s lamb industry.
Our goal is to assist Virginia sheep farmers in tackling their two major business obstacles: consumers’ lack of knowledge on how to find local sheep farmers and their products, as well as their unfamiliarity with how to prepare lamb meat.
