Home Study Courses

Penn State Extension will be offering three Extension Home Study Courses this winter, beginning February 1, 2012. The purpose of the courses is to teach producers about production principles for beef, sheep or meat goats that will help their operations become more profitable.

All three courses are available through the postal service and the sheep and meat goat courses are available through email/internet. Each course has six lessons that are to be completed weekly. The lesson topics include basic production information, nutrition, health, reproduction, marketing, and financial issues.

Cost for a course is $45 if taken over email/internet (sheep and meat goat courses only) and $80 if taken through the postal service. Deadline for registration is January 23, 2012.

For more details or to sign up for a course, go to or call 877-489-1398.
