Master Shepherd Course
The Master Shepherd Course is a series of nine classes that will be taught by Chet Parsons of Parsons’ Farm in Richford, Vermont, and members of the Vermont Sheep and Goat Association.
The classes will cover the primary aspects of sheep husbandry and will include selected aspects of the goat and camelid husbandry. All classes will include a lecture and be held on a working farm where participants will be able to see and participate in the hands-on practical sessions.
This course is a rare opportunity for shepherds to take the next step in their animal husbandry careers. To learn more follow this link.
