Grass fed lamb finishing clinic

Postby Janet McNally » Tue Nov 04, 2014 8:22 pm

I will be holding a clinic for all those interested in learning how to grade lambs for slaughter, and who are interested in how to finish a lamb on pasture. Attendees will learn how to estimate finish, and there will be a discussion on grazing methods, and forages required to produce a grass finished lamb in Minnesota. Parasite management will also be addressed. This is a half day workshop. The workshop will be held at 1 pm on December 6th in Hinckley, Minnesota, weather providing. Please PM me for directions.

Janet-

This sounds like a wonderful learning opportunity no matter where a shepherd lives. But it's just too far from Montana to Minnesota even when the roads are clear, which they won't be soon. Would you consider doing some kind of long-distance learning option? Maybe ask someone to videotape then post highlights to YouTube, or maybe make a pdf of a PowerPoint or written summary of key points and provide us a link in this forum? Sounds like extra work when you already give so much, but if you can swing it there would be a grateful audience.

I don't have the technical capability. But if someone wanted to come record it, that would be fine.

Janet-

I can't get there to shoot video, but could edit raw footage shot by someone else into a product suitable for YouTube. Another idea is to pack an audio recorder along with you and just let it run. I could turn that into a summary written document once the snow chases me out of the pasture this winter. If it sounds like I'm desperate for more knowledge, you're right.

I guess I need to cancel the clinic, partly because there was no response, and partly because winter arrived early, and full bore. As a result I have already shipped half of my lambs. If anyone is interested in stopping by to learn how to grade lambs, you are welcome to do so, but I will not be able to show you the lambs grazing turnips.
