Share this event:


We've all heard the story; someone bought a few beef, hogs, goats, or poultry only to have a series of mishaps. Just getting them home was worthy of a Tonight Show monologue. Breakouts and good neighbor roundups, late night emergency vet calls, nutritional problems, unruly and dangerous behavior, the list can be endless. Suddenly, a small investment in livestock becomes a costly nightmare, often ending in tragedy.

Learn how to keep your livestock happy and healthy at the upcoming Livestock Handling & Care presented by the WSU Snohomish County Extension Agriculture and 4-H programs.

Hands-on workshops with live animals will include topics such as hoof trimming, injections, dehorning, halter training, nutrition, fencing, and more!

Taught by award-winning graduates and seniors from the WSU Snohomish County 4-H Livestock Program, workshop instructors have the experience and expertise needed to raise and show prize-winning livestock. In addition, all attendees will receive a take-home CD-ROM loaded with resources for all species.
