Extension Activities

Extension Overview

In 2017, The E (Kika) de la Garza American Institute for Goat Research will sponsor several extension/education activities. We start with our annual Goat Field Day, which is always scheduled for the last Saturday in April. Other workshops planned are Cheesemaking, Tanning Goatskins, Sustainable Internal Parasite Control, and Artificial Insemination. Due to the hands-on nature of the workshops, the number of participants will be limited. So reserve your place as soon as the registration form becomes available.

If you are interested in receiving future information regarding these events, please check contact Dr. Terry A. Gipson. In compliance with the ADA Act, participants with special needs can be reasonably accommodated by contacting (405) 466-3836, at least five business days prior to the scheduled event.
