Purdue Lambing School

Recommended Posts

Hello board members,

 

Just want to announce our annual Lambing School to be held on February 8, 2014. It also has value to goat producers. The workshop will be held at the Purdue University Animal Sciences Research and Education Center at the sheep unit. Purdue University is about 70 miles north of Indianapolis and about 100 miles south of Chicago. The deadline for entries is January 29 and 40 people are allowed on a first entered basis. A flier and registration form can be obtained at the following url; http://www.ansc.purdue.edu/SH/ under upcoming events.

 

There have been a number of attendees from the boards through the years and the feedback we get is always positive. It is designed as a hands on activity and allows plenty of time for informal questions and discussion.

 

Hope you can make it. Feel free to contact me with any questions.

Thank you, Mike, for posting this. We have neither goats nor sheep but appreciate the excellent school you provide for owners of both. Maybe one of these days...

It is a great opportunity. I've been twice and learned a lot. The only bummer is if no lambs are both the day you're there. The first time I went only one ewe lambed and the second time no ewes lambed. That said, it was still very, very informative with some great speakers and great topics. You get to be very hands on with the lambs already born.
