Master Shepherd Classes

Steve Peters

Chet Parsons is doing a series of classes for a Master Shepherd Course, sponsored by the Vermont Sheep and Goat Association. The next class in on Sunday, April 6 from 9 AM to noon at Sterling College. This is a class for beginners that will cover all aspects of sheep and goat production.   If you are thinking of getting into the sheep or goat business, or have recently taken the plunge and now know what questions to ask, this class is for you. It will start with a classroom lecture and then move to the Sterling Farm for a “hands-on” session.  It will cover handling sheep, basic health care, including hoof trimming, etc.

You can find more info about the courses at  or call Chet at 802-848-3771.  Chet’s email is
