WEBINAR SERIES: Improving Pastured and Free Range Poultry
In January, the National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) and its partners are offering a series of workshops on ways to improve your pastured/free-range poultry operations. At these workshops, we will have talks, hands-on laboratories, and local farm tours. Each workshop will be unique, and will feature experts in the field and local farmers leading conversations about husbandry, preventative practices, coop design, marketing, profitability, regulations and more! These workshops will be held in Davis, California.
Partners in the training include University of California (UC)-Davis, UC Cooperative Extension (UCCE), Center for Last-Based Learning, and USDA-NIFA. All the workshops will begin at 4:30 p.m. and end at 7:30 p.m. The cost is $10 per day or $40 for all five. The workshops also will be available as webinars for $5 per day.
