Education is the key to enhancing the knowledge of regional goat producers to improve the quality of goat meat and production techniques. With Golden LEAF Foundation funding, the Department of Crop Science at NCSU will develop a marketing and educational program targeting the Franklin County Goat Producers Cooperative. This project will address farm diversification, strategies to increase income levels, create a cooperative infrastructure, and develop sustainable agricultural methods. Goat producers from a four county area have joined the cooperative to benefit from program outcomes.
