Winter Care of Small Ruminants (Sheep and Goats)- December 7, 2021, Falmouth

Join Dr. Colt W. Knight, UMaine Extension Livestock Specialist, for this workshop on best practices for winter care of small ruminants (sheep and goats). In this session participants will learn about housing needs of sheep and goats, the nutritional demands of animals in the winter, differences among feeds, and why a properly balanced ration is crucial to animal wellbeing, weight gain, and profitability. We’ll also discuss practical approaches to winter water and shelter management.

A light lunch featuring lamb roast will be included in this workshop.

Registration Deadline: December 1, 2021

This in-person workshop is limited to 20 participants.
