North Carolina women who need to know more about cattle ranching and the handling of cattle now have a new educational opportunity. The N.C. Cooperative Extension and the North Carolina Cattlemen's Association have recently been putting on a series of workshops for women seeking more information and hands on experience with cattle.
Two previous workshops were very successful, note April D. Shaeffer and Jeannette Moore of the N.C. State University Department of Animal Science in a press release announcing yet a third workshop in the series, this one in the Southeastern part of the state.
This newly announced workshop will be:
Saturday, Sept. 29, 2012
9 a.m.-4 p.m.
Center for Environmental Farming Systems (CEFS)
201 Steven's Mill Road, Goldsboro, N.C.
The workshop participants will begin the day with a talk by Bryan Blinson, executive director of the N.C. Cattlemen's Association. Blinson will make his presentation on "Becoming a Leader in the Cattle Industry.
Mark Alley, a veterinarian and professor at N.C. State University will also speak on "Low Stress Cattle Handling."
