sheepThe N.C. Cooperative Extension is offering a Goat and Sheep School on April 27th and 28th at the Brasstown Community Building, Brasstown, NC at 8:30 a.m. Whether you keep goats and/or sheep for a source of income or as a hobby, this program is guaranteed to help you! Some of the topics will include pasture management, kid birthing, nutrition, fencing, predator control, health and more. Specialists will be there to present lectures and hands-on demonstrations at this event.
Also, participants will have the opportunity to become FAMACHA certified (integrated pest management method used to determine parasite loads). There will be a $20 charge for this program, $32 if you want to become FAMACHA certified. The cost will cover lunch and snacks for both days, as well as an information handbook. It has been 9 years since the last Goat College, so call the office to reserve your seat and learn what’s new in small ruminants.
