Do you want to learn about raising sheep? If so, attend the next Sheep School at Tufts for practical skills to raise sheep including: managing meat and wool enterprises, overseeing a breeding program, assessing sheep health, appropriate handling and facilities as well as feed and pasture management. Tufts vets and farmers also trained participants in sheep tipping, hoof trimming, quick-release knots and other hands-on skills.
The New Entry Sustainable Farming Project, in partnership with the Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine in North Grafton, MA offers Sheep School each June. Experienced Cummings School staff including two veterinarians, a herdsman and a sheep farmer lead an all day, hands-on, field school. [Learn more here.]
