Sheep & Goat Seminar – Housing & Equipment – October 19

Providing proper housing for your livestock  is an important aspect to the success of your farming operation, no matter the size.  The  health and performance of your sheep or goats depends upon their comfort in every season.  Proper housing need not be elaborate or expensive – just appropriate.  In addition, the housing and equipment you use can save time and labor.  How much time do you spend caring for or handling your livestock?  Can these regular activities be streamlined? Being  as efficient as possible will make a difference for you, your health and bottom line.

After participating in this seminar, you will be able to effectively assess your situation and make the necessary changes – from air exchange, to cleaning, handling, loading livestock, feed or supply storage and more.

Please make plans to attend this practical seminar scheduled for 9:00 am to 4:00 pm on Saturday, October 19, 2013 at Kennebec Valley Community College in Fairfield, Maine.  For more information 2013 Maine Sheep & Goat Housing and Equipment Seminar
