MPWV Spring Educational Conference.

The MPWV Meat Goat Producers Association and University of Maryland Extension will hold an educational event on Saturday, June 7, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Carroll County Ag Center in Westminster, Maryland.

Seminar topics will include: traditional veterinary and health care; selling your goats; pasture and nutrition; non-traditional goat health care; and the pros and cons of registering your goats. A separate educational track for youth is being planned. It will cover selecting, raising, and getting your kid(s) ready for the show and sale. Speakers will include veterinarians, extension agents, and experienced goat producers.

The day will begin with a very brief business meeting and discussion of upcoming events. The deadline for early registration is May 15. The registration fee is $10/person or $20/family for members and $15/person and $25/family for non-members. Registration paid at the door is $5 extra.
