The Family Cow
Sunday, May 7, 2017 (All day)
Interested in having a milk cow to feed your family and friends & wondering how to get started? Interested in managing your land and livestock organically or ecologically? Curious about the current VT regulations for selling raw milk?
This class will cover the ins and outs of owning a family cow - from health & nutrition, to breeding, milking (hand milking or machine), setting up a rotational grazing system, calf care, udder health, milk quality, raw milk sales, organic certification, and more.
Class participants will have an opportunity for some hands-on learning and will receive a handout, product/resource catalogs, and some product samples to get them on their way. Join us and learn some important points for your new adventure.
