Apply to Participate in the Sheep Foot Health Project

The purpose of this application is to select willing and appropriate farms in the Northeast (Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New York, Maryland, West Virginia, and District of Columbia) to participate in this research project. We are seeking individuals with sheep experience who have managed sheep with and without foot rot problems. Selected farmers will be equipped with the appropriate tools and skills to collect data from their flock. Accurate records are a requirement. All information submitted by participants about their flock and farm will be held in confidence. No farm names or individual’s names will be used when researchers report their findings.

There is no immediate deadline for sheep producers in the Northeast to apply to participate in this on-farm research project. The research team will select ten (10) farms for participation. Farm visits will begin once air temperatures are greater than 45 degrees F.
