West Virginia Buck Test

Several consigners are also participating in West Virginia University's Small Ruminant Evaluation Program. The location of the test is the WVU Animal Science Farm in Morgantown.

The bucks were delivered to the test site on May 14. The test began on May 24. While on test, the bucks are fed in a pen; residual feed intake is calculated.

Progress reports will be disseminated at three week intervals and can be accessed on the web at http://sheepandgoats.wvu.edu or via Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/wvrambucktest.

There will be a sale of qualifying bucks on August 20.
