|Hebe, Acorn and Pia|
This one day course has been organised by West Highland College, part of UHI (University of the Highlands and Islands).
At the end of the day the goats, with some help from me, will have taught you about, breeding, feeding, health, handling, welfare, behaviour and overall management. This will equip you to start keep goats mainly for milk but also meat and fibre production.
Goats are not too keen on a classroom environment and can be as as disruptive as their students so most of the instruction will take place in and around the croft, bring waterproofs and wellies. We'll have lunch in the kitchen when you can sample some goat products. You'll get a chance to milk, trim feet and do other practical stuff. There are only 10 places so if you want to find out more or to book a place contact Pat Glenday. firstname.lastname@example.org or 01397 874260
