Heritage is hosting a 2 day hands-on Sheep & Goat clinic event on May 4th and 5th at the Madison County Fairgrounds. This is an excellent opportunity to get hands on learning from two of the top sheep and goat presenters in the country. They have limited spaces available for participants wanting to bring their animals but also have spectator options available. Registration is available on their website at https://www.heritageshowsupply.com/goat-catalog/available-clinic/clinic-lamb-participant.
