Smallstock Section provides technical advice to the farming community on all aspects of sheep and goat production, development and management. This is done through breed improvement, farmer education and improvement in smallstock infrastructure to enable farmers to sell their produce to improve their standards of living. The Section acts as a link between research and the farming community. In addition, it liaises with the Department of Agricultural Research on topics to be researched on and disseminates research results on smallstock production. Smallstock guidelines
