Determining whether or not your animal is ready for harvest?

  • Tuesday, September 29, 2020, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Guest speaker Mackenzie Waro, meat buyer for Meyer Foods. As we quickly approach the fall season most of our livestock producers are eager to harvest their animals that they have been raising for the past 6 months to a year. This year there has been more of a bottle neck than previously due to the pandemic and concern of a meat shortage. There have been quite a few questions regarding how to determine if this project that was started is truly finished or needs more time on feed to get the most out of your animal. Join us for an in-depth workshop on determining if your animal is ready to be harvested or if you should keep on feed a few months longer. We will also discuss the target weight for each of the species- Lamb, goats, beef and swine. Cost: $10/family. Register at - https://cnydfc.cce.cornell.edu/event.php?id=1296. Virtual meeting through Zoom. Zoom link will be sent out to registrants. For more information call Ashley McFarland at 315-604-2156 or am2876@cornell.edu.
