Return of the Livestock Schools

Last year New Entry organized a series of Livestock Field Trainings in cooperation with the Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine. The workshop were such a hit, we had to bring them back – but this year there’s a bit more variety.
Last year the series was species-specific, with field trainings for poultry, sheep, beef cattle, and swine. This year we’re branching out with some multi-species workshops, including new resources for both beginning and more advanced livestock producers. Some details still need to be worked out, but here’s the schedule we have so far:
June 5 – Livestock Farm Day
9-3:30, in collaboration with the Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary
Medicine, North Grafton MA
June 24 – Forage and Grazing Field Day
