2017 - Shearing School - direct all questions to Jim Bristol (see below for contact info)
2017 - Saturday 10 AM
We will have an expert shepherd to answer your questions, providing basic info for wannabe and new shepherds, and talking about recent research updates in the areas of sheep and pasture management. These seminars are FREE, informal, and informative. Whether you're just thinking about getting some sheep, or have already taken the plunge, you will find a gold mine of information. No need to register in advance; just show up at the animal barn behind Vendor Building #1 at 10 am on Saturday.
Sunday: 1:30-4 PM Every year shepherds and would-be shepherds tour area farms to see good shepherding practices in action. Jim Bristol will navigate.
Contact Jim at firstname.lastname@example.org to let him know how many spaces on the bus you need.
This tour is FREE except for your time!
