Teaching Others About Shepherding

Learning how to trim hooves.

Our first AgEx Shareholders (Agricultural Experience) visited our farm a couple of weeks ago! This couple would like to add sheep to their property and wanted to learn all that they could about shepherding. Their day of instruction centered around topics such as: fencing, shelters, parasite control, rotational grazing, basic sheep care, and lambing.
Inspecting the flock.
We sent them home with a notebook full of livestock catalogs, journal articles, and various resource lists. At the end of their stay with us, they were even more convinced that they wanted to start their own flock of sheep!
