    Proposal abstract:

    The purpose of this project is to explore pasture fed lamb production in partnership with my neighbor who will have a group of lambs that I will use to set up a rotational grazing system over the summer. I will use data collected on weight gains and use to conduct a cost analysis of the system. This information will be used as an agriscience research project through FFA and 4-H.
