Gain the confidence and skills to prevent losses at lambing, kidding, and calving time and get your specific questions answered!

***UPDATE 3/5/2020***
Today, the county released updated recommendations regarding COVID-19. They are recommending we cancel events that will bring together 10 or more people as “limiting social contact at this stage of the disease’s spread is a pretty darned good idea.”

With that in mind, we have decided to cancel both WSU Extension events (Lambing, Kidding, and Calving Workshop and WSDA Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Update) on Lopez tomorrow. We will be in touch when we are able to reschedule these events.
This fact sheet released today by the county is very helpful if you have current questions about the Islands and COVID-19: https://www.sanjuanco.com/DocumentCenter/View/19925/200305-Guest-Column-2-COVID-19-FAQ
