Introduction to Meat and Dairy Goats

Tuesday, November 8th, 2016; 6pm – 8pm; $5/family

This introductory workshop will cover the care, basic nutrition, common diseases, and marketing outlets for goat products of the most common breeds in the US – a perfect workshop for the homesteader or beginning farmer interested in raising goats. Kate Ewer, a crazy goat lady whose love for goats began as a 4-H youth fifteen years ago, will lead this workshop. She has experience with dairy, meat, and working goats and now keeps a few Boer Does for a hobby. She’s currently the 4-H Community Educator with CCE-Chautauqua.

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!
