A hands-on farrowing clinic “for both the newbie and the pro” is offered by the University of Missouri Extension in Carrollton. The program will be February 22nd at 5:30 pm.
MU Extension livestock specialist Heather Conrow says the clinic covers the basics, including reproductive anatomy and endocrinology, artificial insemination, farrowing and piglet processing. After the classroom sessions, participants will be guided through hands-on stations.
Conrow encourages 4-H and FFA members to attend the session and earn three swine or veterinary science project hours.
The event is at the Carroll County Youth Building, 101 Walnut Hills, Carrollton. Register by Feb. 18 by calling the MU Extension Center in Carroll County at 660-542-1792 or emailing Conrow at email@example.com.
