Fiber animal care, shearing and processing and marketing of fiber products information will be presented at a workshop Saturday, Nov. 2, at the Laramie Research and Extension Center Wool Lab.
The workshop is 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Turn right immediately after entering the Cliff and Martha Hansen Teaching Arena entrance on Wyo. 230 southwest of Laramie. The wool lab is the first building on the left.
“The workshop will be good introductions to raising fiber animals and understanding the steps in creating a marketable fiber product. Future shepherds and fiber enthusiasts will learn from the best producers and marketers around,” said UW Extension specialist Cole Ehmke, who is helping organize the workshop.
This event is organized by UW Extension and supported by the Laramie Rivers Conservation District and the USDA Risk Management Agency.
Lunch and snacks will be provided. Registration is requested online by Nov. 1 at http://fiberanimals.eventbrite.com. Registration is $15.
