Lambing and Kidding 101 Farm Workshop
If you are new to keeping sheep or goats, come take a workshop on a working farm with an experienced farmer on the basics of breeding and birthing. Carol Clement will lead a workshop for beginners on lambing and kidding at Heather Ridge Farm. If you are a new farmer or a wannabe, this is for you. Members of 4-H and FFA are welcome.
Sunday, Jan. 28, 10am to 4pm, the workshop covers from breeding to gesta
tion, care of the pregnant ewe or doe, nutrition, parasites, and getting your birthing supplies organized. You will see farm’s animal quarters set-up for breeding groups and gestation, and meet the sheep, goats and guard animals.
Then the workshop will cover the period just before birth, birthing, troubleshooting labor problems, other supplies needed, and newborn care. Workshop participants will be invited back to the farm during the birthing period to see the newborns and their care.
The workshop costs $40 adult (one or two per household), $20 for students, or 18 and under, and includes lunch and materials. The farm’s café will be closed that day for the workshop. Please call Carol at 518-239-6234 to reserve a spot.
