The NCSU Meat Goat Program & the Status of the NC Meat Goat Industry

— Written By

In July 1994, The NC general Assembly approved a budget that included $200,000/year in recurring funds for the development of a meat goat program at NCSU. Following that appropriation, NCSU established in 1995 a faculty position with technical support staff and an operating budget in support of this fledgling industry. In late October 1995, Dr. Jean-Marie Luginbuhl was hired as an Assistant professor to lead the NCSU research and extension meat goat program.
