Caroline and David Owens of Owens Farm announce:
Thinking about adding sheep to your operation? Got the first few already? We invite you to jump-start the learning curve at our annual very hands-on workshop on keeping sheep. A panel of experienced shepherds will share their expertise on topics such as “How To Handle Sheep So They Don’t Handle You,” “Home Vet Skills,” “Best Buys For That First Sheep,” “Fat, or Fluffy?” and “Hoof Health.”
Half the day will be spent practicing essential management skills out in the sheep barn. A shared covered dish lunch will allow time for networking and conversation.
Details: Saturday, May 14, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuition $45 for the first person in a family, $40 for the second. Attendance is limited to 25. For more information, speaker profiles, and registration, visit our website; call (570) 286-5309 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
