When thinking about growing your herd, animal birth will be one of the most exciting and challenging aspects of your farmstead. This interactive workshop will discuss many of the key aspects to birth on the farm including gestation lengths for multiple species, signs of labor, creating the ideal freshening environment, baby care, mama care, and what to look for as you try to prevent issues that can sometimes arise. Leading this workshop will be New York State Veterinarian, Dr. Shannon Carpenter, who has many years of experience with livestock animal operations and has previously worked as a private veterinarian.
