PCN TV Virtual 2021 Farm Show
We were contacted in the fall of 2020 about hosting a sheep herding event for a virtual farm show. It sounded interesting enough and as we got planning for it, we found out that additional sheep education was welcome, so we rounded up some top talent to do some presentations.
Much thanks to :
Melanie Barkley with PSU Extension, Small Ruminant Specialist
Sally Scholle a board member of the American Lamb Board
Titus Martin a consultant for NRCS
Jan Turner for the great lamb dishes we served the crew and participants

Deb Mickey and I set up a 4 acre paddock as a mini trial field. We set up fetch panels, cross drive panels as well as a funnel chute. Instead of a typical trial pen, we used the stock trailer as "the pen"which demonstrated how a dog can do actual farm work. We had runs by Deb, Sherry Sheldon and Marianne Walters. I am at the set out.
