From the moment we told a few people about the idea of our podcast, Dr Charles Parker of Ohio was the name everyone mentioned to have as a guest. His contribution to the sheep industry over the last 60+ yrs is unmeasurable. This episode discusses his time at US Sheep Research Center in Dubois, ID as well as the 3 legged, now 4 legged stool and the Madame ewe.
Dr Charles Parker is one of three honorary members of Katahdin Hair Sheep International. Dr Parker is also one of five key individuals who worked and collaborated to establish Katahdin Hair Sheep International in 1985. Dr Parker has had an influential career beyond his role with Katahdins. A few of his other accomplishments include Emeritus Professor and Emeritus Department Chairperson of the Animal Science Department at The Ohio State University and Emeritus Director of the US Sheep Experiment Station in Dubois, Idaho which is part of USDA ARS (US Dept of Agriculture, Agricultural Research Service). Recently, Dr Charles Parker received the McClure Silver Ram Award from the American Sheep Industry Association which recognizes individuals from the professional community that have provided exceptional service and leadership to the sheep industry.--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/sheepthings/support
