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.

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.
