New York State Sheep/Goat Health Assurance Program

Saturday, October 22nd, 2016; 10am – 12pm; $5/family

If you are a sheep or goat owner, you won’t want to miss this workshop! Learn about biosecurity for your herd/flock; important diseases; parasite management and herd planning. An overview of NYSSGHAP will be presented (a voluntary disease management program offered by NYS Department of Agriculture and Markets). The goal of this program is to increase herd/flock health, production and profitability. The presenters will be New York State Veterinarians, Dr. Shannon Carpenter and Dr. Melanie Hemenway, who have experience with this program and have previously worked with sheep and goat operations as private veterinarians.

This event is part of the 2016-2017 L.E.A.F. (Learn. Empower. Achieve. Farm.) Workshop Series. The L.E.A.F. (Learn. Empower. Achieve. Farm.) Program is made possible through the generous support of the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation. The L.E.A.F. (Learn. Empower. Achieve. Farm.) Series is open to beginning farmers, established farms looking to diversify and grow, agriculture enthusiasts, homesteaders, and EVERYONE in between!
