The Tennessee State University Cooperative Extension Program has Expanded to 50 Counties
The Tennessee State University Cooperative Extension Program has expanded from three counties to 50, serving limited-resource, hard-to-reach, and socially disadvantaged areas through programs. One program is the Master Meat Goat Producer Program that provides education, information, and insight to broaden production management skills and improve competitiveness in the marketplace to increase proﬁtability for meat goat producers. Over the last 10 years, the program has led Tennessee to become the second largest goat-producing state in the country with more than 5,000 producers.
