Shepherd Workshops 2017

Our Shepherd Workshops are geared towards the needs of owners – and prospective owners – of small ruminants and other fiber animals. Featured workshop presenters include veterinarians and small ruminant owners who are willing to share their knowledge and experience.

The workshops are offered free of charge and no advance registration is required.

Shepherd Workshops will meet in the Animal Barn Tent which is located across from the Animal Barn.
