There is a free webinar on the Winter Care of Poultry planned for Tuesday, January 15, 2013 at 7:00 pm eastern.
Most poultry can handle cold weather very well as long as they are sheltered from wind and kept dry. To keep hens laying, however, requires light supplementation. In this 60-minute webinar we will be discussing what is involved in keeping poultry productive through the cold weather of winter. The lead instructor is Dr. Jacquie Jacob, an Extension Poultry Specialist for the University of Kentucky.
To connect to the webinar go to https://connect.extension.iastate.edu/poultry just before 7PM (Eastern) on January 15, 2013.
FYI - There are a few more poultry-related eXtension webinars scheduled for this winter. Please mark them on your calendar. They include
- So you want to raise turkeys (February 14, 2013; 7 PM Eastern)
- Producing poultry meat on pasture (March 28, 2013; 7 PM Eastern)
These webinars came about with support from the University of Maine and a grant from Northeast SARE.
