January 13, 2015Pennsylvania 4-H Animal Science Programs are open to all youth - with or without farm backgrounds.
January 9, 2015Allegheny County Extension will host a two-day short course, “Estimating and Bidding for Landscape Installation,” Scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday, January 28 and 29, 2015, the course is a must for anyone bidding on landscape jobs. Responding to a long-term survey, participants from the 2013 sessions, offered in Allegheny and Lehigh counties, reported a total increase of at least $1,052,500 in net returns to their businesses in the nine months after taking the class and using the techniques they learned there.
December 22, 2014This one-day short course will be held in four locations across Pennsylvania. Equine gastrointestinal parasites, and their increasing resistance to available dewormers, are a major concern in the equine industry. Taking a whole-farm approach to control can cut down on deworming, save money on products that are no longer effective on your farm, help you learn which horses have natural resistance and which ones are “shedders”, and help reduce parasite resistance.
