Sheep and Goat ID.

It is the mission of the National Livestock Producers Association’s Sheep & Goat Fund to encourage innovation and efficiency in the sheep and goat industries by providing credit to eligible and qualified entities.

The NLPA Sheep and Goat Fund is a revolving fund established within NLPA to assist the U.S. sheep and goat industries by strengthening and enhancing the production and marketing of sheep and goats and their products in the United States.

The Fund is the result of a joint effort of the National Sheep Industry Improvement Center (NSIIC) (now the American Sheep and Goat Center) and the National Livestock Producers Association (NLPA). The NSIIC made funds available to NLPA, which serves as an Intermediary and established the Sheep and Goat Fund. NLPA has the ability to service and administer this important program and was selected for their ability to provide:

  • expertise with livestock production, processing and marketing-related lending;

  • nationwide capability in urban and rural areas; and the ability to process and

  • service loans from all segments of the sheep and goat industries; from production through the packer/processor/retail level.

The Sheep and Goat Industry is in need of creative ideas that will add value to sheep and goats and the products they provide. National Livestock Producers Association encourages industry members to evaluate the immediate needs in their area, gather support from others who recognize those needs, and work together to find the most effective solutions to local concerns.

The purpose of the fund has been to assist in financing projects beyond the farm gate; however, as of June 2013 the fund has  the ability to make term loans to sheep producers for the purpose of flock expansion. Click here for more information.
