The Power of Poultry with The Livestock Conservancy and Joe Claborn
Saturday, Feb. 16. 2:00-5:00 p.m. - Sponsored by Manna Pro
Interested in raising your own poultry flock for meat, eggs, or both? Have you recently started a flock but feel you still have a lot to learn about bird health and nutrition? Perhaps you keep laying chickens now but want to get into meat birds? Are you interested in learning how to raise poultry to market for supplemental income? If the answer is yes to any of these questions, you won’t want to miss this extended workhsop.
In this interactive session, you will learn the common sense basics of setting up for a breeder flock and how to make good breeding decisions for creating birds that meet breed standard while producing better meat and eggs in the process. Over time, you can make great improvements to your flock, which will translate to healthier, more productive, and ultimately more valuable birds.
This session will include hands-on instruction for handling live chickens for the purpose of breeding birds and their evaluation as well as hands on egg selection from a variety of quality and ages.
This session is designed to be very personal and interactive, so space is strictly limited. Reservations are available first-come, first-served. Do not miss this one-of-a-kind experience!
