Sheep and Goat Virtual Workshop Series for Beginners

N.C. Cooperative Extension will be offering an online series for new and beginning producers.

Introduction to Sheep & Goats – October 8, 2020 During this introductory session, you will learn the difference between sheep and goats and their purposes. We will discuss meat vs dairy vs fiber and which one may be the right fit for your operation.

Fencing & Facilities for Sheep & Goats – October 22, 2020 If you plan to raise livestock, you need to have appropriate fencing and facilities. It will look different on every farm, but there are some basics you must consider. We will discuss pasture layout, fencing, and working facilities.

Beginner Nutrition for Sheep & Goats – November 12, 2020 Knowing what and how much to feed your animal is paramount to helping to keep them healthy. Nutrient requirements change based on the animals’ stage of production. Join us for this session to gain an understanding of how to feed your animal to its potential.

The series will be offered through Zoom. All sessions will be from 6:30-7:30 p.m. EST. Registration for each event is separate. Click on the above links to register for the sessions you want to participate in.
