Livestock Meet-Up

Wednesday April 3 @ 7:15 pm - 8:30 pm

Standard/Member | Free Register

Do you have livestock? Do you want to? Come to this Livestock Meet-Up for the insights of Katrina McQuail. Katrina is experienced in raising meat chickens, laying hens, cattle, pigs, sheep, goats and horses. After learning about some livestock management practices for the first half of the meet-up, there will be time for attendees to ask questions and have discussion with each other as well as Katrina. Based on some of the interest from attendees during this session, EFAO will explore hosting more specialized livestock education events. So come to get your questions answered and to share your learning goals for future events!

Folks who attend will also hear about the EFAO Livestock Network as another opportunity to learn more. Katrina will also speak briefly about her role as a mentor with the Farmers for Climate Solutions FaRM program, including how you can connect with her for more insights.
