Penn State Offers Home Study Courses

Penn State Extension offers several home study courses:  sheep, meat goats, beef, and livestock grazing. All are six week courses.

The next sheep, meat goat, and beef courses are scheduled to begin on February 4, 2015. The registration deadline is January 26, 2015. Registration is now open. Unfortunately, the livestock grazing course has already begun (October 15).

There are six lessons in each course.  Lessons are mailed weekly for six weeks. The first lesson will be mailed or emailed on February 6. Postal participants will receive a CD of materials. Participants read lesson materials and complete a worksheet. The worksheet is returned to the instructor for comments and suggestions for ways to improve the participant's own operation.

The cost of each course is $50 via internet/e-mail and $85 via the postal service.
