2017 Train Like a Champion Livestock Clinic
Hosted by Agents in Austin, Burleson, Fayette, and Washington Counties
This multi-species educational clinic will include sessions on Hogs, Cattle, Poultry, Rabbits and Sheep and Goats throughout the day. Many of the sessions are staggered so that families may attend multiple sessions. This is a fantastic opportunity for new and novice families to learn more about what is required to be successful with their livestock projects. This is also a great recordbook event for those who are working to build a great book! The clinic is free of charge and great door prizes will be given in each session.
