The Sheep School in Pictures

We had our Sheep School last month with solid turnout and excellent speakers – you know, the norm. Here are some of the highlights:

We had something new this year: Betty Levin brought her collies to show us how to use sheepdogs.

The vet school’s sheep weren’t too cooperative at first, which made the dogs’ work that much more impressive.

Back in the barn, Rosario Delgado-Lecaroz (pictured) and Scott Brundage demonstrated FAMACHA (if you own sheep or goats, look it up!), a parasite control practice, and let participants try their hand.

We also passed around the hoof trimmers for some hands-on practice.

New Entry Director Jennifer Hashley got in on the action, too.
Next up: the Beef Cattle School, our final livestock school of the year. It’s on Saturday, Oct. 23, at the vet school in North Grafton (click here for more details and to register). Don’t wait – Tuesday the 19th is your last day to register!
