Southeast Indiana Ewe/Lamb Workshop

April 19 @ 9:00 am - 1:30 pm


Join  Greenacres for a Spring Ewe/Lamb Workshop and lunch. This workshop is for sheep and small ruminant livestock producers to prepare for Spring lambing season and starting the grazing season. The workshop will focus on Gestation Nutrition, Preparing Lambing Facilities, Health and Nutrition and a Pasture Walk. Registration is free however, we ask that you RSVP by April 15th.

An optional FAMACHA Training with Cora Reinbolt is available at 1:30pm after the main workshop ends. Use of the FAMACHA system allows small ruminant producers to make deworming decisions based on an estimate of the level of anemia in sheep and goats, which is an indicator of clinical worm infection. This training will cost $30 and is 2 hours long.

The event is hosted by Greenacres Foundation, at Michaela Farm, Oldenburg, Indiana. Lunch will be provided.

Robert Zupanic – NRCS Grazing Specialist
