The basics of how to clip dairy goats, and tips/tricks that work well for me. I will cover how to clip bodies, udders, legs, and tricky spots. I will also go over what clippers I have, and what blade sizes I prefer to use. This is great for people interested in showing dairy goats, or anyone who wants to brush up on their clipping techniques. The 1st workshop would be basics and body clipping. 2nd workshop would be leg, head, and other places to touch up. 3rd workshop would be udders and any final questions. Register by July 13.
The program takes place over three consecutive Tuesdays, starting July 14 and ending July 28.
Youth ages 9 and up; open to Maine youth; maximum 15 attendees.
