Eweprofit II will be held at the University of Kentucky Sheep Unit on October 9, 2012, beginning at 10 a.m. This program is designed for new and prospective sheep producers although experienced shepherds are welcome to attend to hone their shepherding skills. Topics of discussion and hands-on work will include breeding and genetics, disease and internal parasite prevention, condition scoring ewes, management of pregnant ewes, fall and winter feeding, and preparation for lambing.
Three Eweprofit Schools are conducted annually. Theoretically, clientele who attend all three schools will be able to efficiently manage a ewe flock on an annual basis. Eweprofit I is held in June; Eweprofit III is held in April each year. Participation in Lambing School each January provides further guidance into the annual management of a ewe flock.
Again, Eweprofit II class will begin at 10 a.m. on October 9. Lunch (on your own) will be from 12 to 1 p.m. Instruction will conclude by 3 p.m. No pre-registration or fee is required, but participants are asked to contact Dr. Don Ely at 859-257-2717 or firstname.lastname@example.org of your planned attendance.
