Multi-species Livestock Production

Felicia Bell, NCAT Sustainable Agriculture Specialist at the Gulf States Regional Office in Jackson, Mississippi, has been hosting an online series of workshops, “Weekly Wednesday Workshops.”

In this episode, Felicia focuses on smaller animals that can be easier for limited resource farmers to produce and for low-income families to purchase, such as poultry and rabbits.

This workshop series, part of NCAT’s ATTRA sustainable-agriculture program, is designed to help farmers strengthen the resilience of their operations through marketing, the diversification of enterprises, and sustainable production practices. Though the series was begun during the COVID-19 pandemic, the information in these online workshops is pertinent whether or not a pandemic is taking place.
