Baby Mama Drama: do’s and don’ts of animal birth on the farm will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 21 at the Frank Bratt Agricultural Center, 3542 Turner Rd., Jamestown.

It is presented by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Chautauqua County’s Agriculture Program as part of their 2017-2018 L.E.A.F. (Learn. Empower. Achieve. Farm.) Workshop Series.

This interactive workshop will discuss many of the key aspects to birth on the farm including gestation lengths for multiple species, signs of labor, creating the ideal freshening environment, baby care, mama care and what to look for as you try to prevent issues that can sometimes arise.

Leading this workshop will be New York State Veterinarian Dr. Shannon Carpenter who has many years of experience with livestock animal operations and has previously worked as a private veterinarian.

The cost is $5 per family.

Pre-registration is required prior to the workshop to allow for adequate time to prepare printed resources and materials.
