Approximately 80 people from six states attend the 2009 Lambing & Kidding School, held November 21 in Waldorf, Maryland. The bi-annual school is sponsored by University of Maryland Extension.

The main speaker was Dr. Susan Kerr, an Extension Educator and veterinarian from Washington State University. Dr. Kerr's participation in the school was sponsored by Northeast Sustainable Agriculture and Research (SARE).
