ELIZABETH, Ill. — Join Teresa Steckler, a University of Illinois Extension commercial agriculture educator, for a program on raising sheep and goats. The program will be from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Sept. 17 at the Jo Daviess County Extension office, 204 Vine St., Elizabeth.
Steckler will cover overall management of sheep and goats. She will touch on parasites, nutrition, and proper care. She also will talk about co-grazing and invasive species control with sheep and goats.
