Linda Coffey has worked as an Agriculture Specialist for the National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) since 2000, with most of her focus on working with sheep and goat producers and in “train the trainer” projects. Her office is located in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Linda earned her B.S. and M.S. degrees in Animal Science from the University of Missouri, her home state.  She conducts educational programs and writes farmer-friendly publications to provide producers with accurate, research-based, practical information to improve the sustainability of their farms and ranches. While NCAT operates many projects, the largest is ATTRA (, which has provided information to farmers for over 25 years.  NCAT is pleased to participate in the Consortium to help extend integrated parasite management information to sheep and goat producers.  Linda and her family raise Gulf Coast Native sheep and Alpine dairy goats on their small farm in northwest Arkansas, where they employ FAMACHA© and sericea lespedeza, as well as judicious culling, to reduce internal parasite problems in their flock and herd.
