SKAGIT – The WSU Livestock Advisor program begins a 10-week series of classes Sept. 12 at the Burlington WSU Skagit County Extension office. Livestock covered includes sheep, goats, beef, swine, rabbits, poultry, and livestock guardian dogs. Topics range from housing needs, feeding, breeding, and fencing to raising livestock sustainably, mud and manure management, and weed management. Cost of the 10-week course is $125 with a second person from the farm or family free. Participants are asked to return 50 hours of volunteer time over a two-year period, crafting the experience to match their availability and interests. The training runs through Nov. 28, meeting Tuesdays from 6-9 p.m. at WSU Skagit County Extension, 11768 Westar Lane, Suite A, Burlington, WA.
