Rural Living Month Webinars: Homestead Livestock Choices (online)

April 2, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Join Kirsten Lie-Nielsen, an author and farmer living in rural Maine, to learn which livestock species is the best fit for your homestead. Kirsten will help you determine what livestock can serve you and your land best on the homestead. This workshop will delve into the different livestock options for the modern homestead, their pros and cons, and how they can help manage your land.

Rural Living Month, formerly known as Rural Living Day, is an annual event in April hosted by the University of Maine Cooperative Extension and Waldo County Extension Association. During the four-week event, a variety of workshops will be offered by Extension staff and community experts on topics ranging from gardening with youth to cheesemaking, invasive forest pests, and livestock management. This year the event will consist of four virtual workshops on the first four Saturdays in April. There is a $10 fee per workshop. Scholarships are available, call the Waldo County Cooperative Extension office at 207.342.5971.

Proceeds from this year’s event will support the WCEA post-secondary education scholarship for Waldo County residents. For more information on the WCEA scholarship visit
