Organic Farming: Principles & Practices – Basic Livestock Handling

Wednesday, May 1, 2019
Misty Brook Farm in Albion, Maine
Fee: $75; $60 for MOFGA members

Knowing proper handling and first-aid techniques can save lots of money and grief when adding livestock to the farm. Jacki Perkins, a long-time homesteader and MOFGA's organic dairy and livestock specialist, will teach livestock handling at Misty Brook Farm in Albion. Misty Brook Farm boasts a variety of amiable livestock that are accustomed to intensive handling and are uniquely suited as a training tool. Everyone will leave the session with the confidence needed to safely handle animals, and completing this training will benefit current or future employment. Lunch will be provided. Please register for this event.
