SOUTHWEST, N.Y. — Have you ever considered raising goats on your farm or homestead? Veterans are invited to join Cornell Cooperative Extension Specialists, Amy Barkley and Katelyn Walley-Stoll, to learn more about evaluating a goat for purchase in a FREE virtual seminar. This will take place on Thursday, May 5th, 2022 from 6pm – 7:30pm via Zoom. Registration is required before May 3rd by visiting tinyurl.com/FarmOpsGoat.
Compact, hardy, and endlessly entertaining, these small ruminants can be equally challenging and rewarding to raise for meat, dairy, and companions. Veterans are invited to join this free virtual seminar to learn more about the options for getting started with goat production, and how to get started on the right hoof. Selecting goats for purchase can be a daunting task, but we’ll equip you with the tools and know how you need to select animals that will make your goat adventures worthwhile.
For any questions, concerns, or accommodation requests, please contact Katelyn Walley-Stoll at firstname.lastname@example.org or 716-640-0522.
