Budgetary pressures force uSask to sell sheep flock

May 6, 2013

In response to budgetary pressures, the University of Saskatchewan will no longer maintain its flock of approximately 300 sheep on its campus farm, but will make animals available to meet teaching and research needs in the College of Agriculture and Bioresources and for the Western College of Veterinary Medicine. The dean of the College of Agriculture and Bioresources says the college has decided to focus its limited budget for campus farm activities on poultry, dairy, and beef, and will buy sheep as needed for future student learning opportunities and research. The college will seek a single buyer for the sheep flock in the next few weeks. uSask News Release
