It's not too late to start thinking about upcoming programs the Univeristy of Illinois Taylorville Extension is holding next month, especially those geared toward 4-H families that could benefit kids for their livestock shows. On March 4th, Alicia Gullidge, 4-H youth and Development Coordinator at the Exnention is holding a Sheep and Goat Clinic to go over everything someone may need to know to raise a healthy sheep or goat. Gary Letterly, Energy and Environmental Stewardship Educator said Gullidge will go over topics such as nutrition, herd management, and will be a good baseline when learning the best ways to raise goats and sheep.
Letterly said, while this program is focused more on 4-H kids and their families, this is a program that could benefit anyone who's interested in raising goats and sheep.
The Sheep and Goat Clinic is taking place Saturday, March 4th from 1:00 to 3:30, more information can be found at the U of I Taylorville Extension.
Letterly appeared on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
