Vet 101: what to do when things go wrong will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 20 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.

Many beginning farmers and homesteaders have limited access to vet care and it’s important to know how to care for animals when things go wrong. Join 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. This workshop will cover many of the basics for a beginning or small farmer, including items to have on hand in your “tool kit,” signs of illness, a discussion on when to call the vet, information on vets in our area to contact and how to measure key vital signs.

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.
