This is Land O’Lakes/Purina Companion Animal Nutritionist, Clay Elliott, guest speaking on our @grangecoop Facebook LIVE post! Dr. Elliott was available for a goat Q&A session directly with our followers. Watch as Clay discusses recommended nutrition and the basics of caring for goats.
As a researcher and sheep producer, Clay wears both hats to understand and attack problems affecting sheep and goat raisers. Clay has a Ph.D. in reproductive physiology and a master’s in meat science from Texas Tech University. Prior to joining Purina, Clay worked in academia, teaching classes in meat science, livestock evaluation and production, and animal science, as well as training collegiate judging teams.
Clay continues his research at Purina by brainstorming new products and formulas for small ruminants to help meat goat and sheep producers resolve issues and improve their operations. Thanks for watching and for more information on goat care and nutrition, visit us on our GrangeKnows blog.
