  • Intermediates - You have decided to start a registered herd of Targhee sheep.  As you purchase animals, what genetic traits (positive and negative) will you consider?  How will these traits influence your decision when purchasing animals?
  • Seniors - You manage a swine facility with breeding animals.  Additionally, you feed swine until they are ready for market.  What nutritional considerations should you make for each aspect of your facility?
