SENECA CO., N.Y. — Seneca County ranks 6th for the number of sheep within New York State, according to the 2012 USDA Agriculture Census. Farms that have sheep, or are considering starting a flock, can learn more about raising sheep through a six-week online course with the Cornell Small Farms Program titled “Commercial Sheep Production”.
There are a number of ways to raise sheep successfully; this course will allow participants to explore a variety of options to accommodate their farming objectives and lifestyle. All levels of experience will build upon their knowledge in production, marketing, processing and sales of lamb and sheep products to generate more profit from their farm enterprise.
The six Thursday evening webinars begin Thursday, January 17 – Thursday, February 21, 2019 and run from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm EST and can be accessed anywhere with a high-speed internet connection.
