This one-day workshop is for growers new to pastured poultry, those considering adding poultry as an enterprise, or experienced growers looking for production tips.

We will meet at the NC Cooperative Extension- Caldwell County Center for the morning session and then travel to Rippetoe Farm and Isidore Farm near Lenoir in the afternoon. The workshop will cover various production topics including biosecurity, determining the type of operation you may want to have (species and type), breeds, health, molting, best management practices (BMP’s), budgets, marketing, processing, housing, feed/water, fencing, and predator control.
