About the event
This class is designed to help you navigate the new and exciting world of owning and caring for a family cow & calf.
Topics to discuss will include:
* Animal Health-organically approved approaches including Homeopathy!
* Grazing Management
* Calf Care
* Animal Nutrition
* Breeds and Breeding
* Housing and Husbandry
* Marketing your milk: raw milk regulations in VT
Class will include some hands-on learning and will provide you with a list of useful books and resource links, livestock product catalogs, and product samples to get you on your way.
* I appreciated your openness to questions, the organization in material you were to cover and your nature and presence with the animals. Also, your willingness to receive questions and offer guidance via email or phone after the workshop.
* I thought the workshop took a comprehensive view of the basics. I left feeling I had a solid foundation of learning the basics and that I could continue my learning with the resources recommended.
