Poultry Production

Profiting from Layers, Broilers, Turkeys, and Ducks

Many new farmers get started with poultry, because it’s a relatively low-investment enterprise with a fairly quick turnaround time from start-up to revenue. The margins can be slim though, and farmers need to develop the necessary skillset to produce a product that is both safe and profitable. This course will help you get started with all the basic information to build a successful poultry enterprise.

Tues. November 3, 2020, 6–7:30 p.m. Eastern time, and each Tuesday after that until the final webinar on Tuesday, December 8.

Beef Cattle Management

Learn to Raise Beef Profitably

Having a successful cattle business is about much more than just buying a few head and putting them in a field. If you want to turn a profit, you need to think carefully about your goals, marketing strategy, appropriate breeds, and many more details. Over the six weeks of this course you’ll get a much clearer idea of what is involved, whether it’s the right fit for you, and if it is, what steps you need to take to get started.

Wed November 4, 2020, 6:30–8 p.m. Eastern, and each Wednesday after that until the final webinar on Wednesday, December 9.

Getting Started with Pastured Pigs

Developing a Successful Farm Business with Pigs

This course is formatted to guide beginning farmers through the production and marketing of pigs raised in pasture settings. Pigs can function as a profitable stand-alone enterprise or can be integrated into your existing farm structure to provide a variety of products and make use of marginal lands that would otherwise go unused. Pigs are also ideal for turning agricultural wastes such as spent grain, whey, or seconds into a valuable product, and with proper management, they can improve the land where they are kept.

Mon, November 2, 2020, from 6:30–8 p.m. Eastern, and each Monday after that until the final webinar on Monday, December 7.
