SW03 Basic Sheep Handling with Dr. Richard Barczewski

Friday, May 1 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the Show Ring

This is a session integral, but not essential, to the morning workshop. It will deal with basics in handling sheep such as assessing, foot care, injection sites, and ewe-jitsu (how to flip a sheep) – good elementary information that’s hard to get from a sheet of paper or a computer screen.

Class Code: SW03 Class Fee: $20 as a standalone session; included in the class fee for students in the morning session. 25 Student Maximum.

Dr. Barczewski recently retired as a Professor in the Department of Agriculture and Natural Resources at Delaware State University.
