4H March Livestock Meeting: Sunday, 3/8, 1 PM

Thursday, March 5th, 2009

We will be greeting our newest member, a registered  American Milking Devon heifer calf from the farm of John and Bonnie Hall in Westbrook, Ct.

She is 3 months old and has already gotten use to a halter. We will be working with her to take to the Fair and will start to make a concerted effort to halter break at least one of the beltie heifers.

Anyone interested in ordering chicks, it is time to bring your list. We will discuss needs for brooding the chicks once they arrive.

Finally, if we have time, we are way behind collecting maple sap and will be tapping trees for a sugar boil later in the month.
