Poultry Education Series 2019
For the backyard beginner or small-scale commercial poultry producer.
Join WSU Extension’s Regional Small Farms Program and Peninsula Poultry Breeders Association for this educational series for poultry growers. This series is intended for those who want to deepen their knowledge in raising poultry from the backyard beginner to the small-scale commercial poultry producer.
We offered five classes throughout the year and only one remains in 2019. Each class takes place in a different location (Clallam, Jefferson and Kitsap County locations).
