STARTING RIGHT WITH SHEEP
A Very Hands-On, Full-Day Workshop
Sat. May 17, 2014
8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Getting started with sheep? Jump-start the learning curve and avoid common mistakes by spending a day with experienced shepherds—and a lively flock of sheep. Gain hands-on practice with essential skills. Meet people you can call on later for advice. Our guest shepherds bring you a diversity of experience in meat and fleece production and marketing, grazing strategies, and purebred sales.
Bring a Covered Dish to share for lunch!
Program Fee $45 for 12 and up (younger kids free)
Attendance limited to 30 to maximize hands-on practice.
This year’s guest shepherds are Janice Jenkins (Icelandics, Merinos, Tunis, emphasis on wool), Jan Motter (registered Shropshires and Polypays),
, and Owens Farm (direct-marketed, grass-fed Katahdins and Coopworths).
