Ever wonder what the difference between a cow and heifer is? Here is your chance to find out. This intensive class covers everything from farm jargon and basic animal anatomy and physiology to basic husbandry through a combination of classroom and field (barnyard) instruction about the various heritage breeds of livestock preserved by the Accokeek Foundation: American Milking Devons, Hog Island Sheep, Ossabaw Hogs, Buckeye Chickens, and Black Turkeys.
Participants will receive their own copy of The Backyard Homestead Guide to Raising Farm Animals to take home.
