For the past three years, the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences has offered the Lamb Field Day program as a way to prepare 4-H'ers and FFA members who plan to show lambs for the show season ahead.
The program consists of hands-on instruction on topics ranging from training lambs for shows to shearing, showmanship and much more.
Participants are strongly encouraged to bring their lambs and their lambs' health papers because of the hands-on nature of the workshops. Those who haven't yet gotten their lambs for the show season are still invited to attend.
The $5 registration cost will cover lunch and snacks. The deadline to register is May 25. For more information, contact your county Extension Service agent.
