NEW: Cowshare College Canada course outline now posted on the Events page

Aspiring Canadian cowshare farmers will have a second chance to learn how it’s done, later this month from the cowshare expert himself, Michael Schmidt. Registration form and course outline can now be found on The Bovine’s “Events” page. Here’s the news release from Cowshare College Canada:

“After Michael Schmidt’s acquittal on all charges relating to his cowshare operation earlier this year, he responded to the intense interest from producers with the first Canadian Cowshare College in May.

Positive feedback and increased interest means we will be offering another Cowshare College Basics Workshop on Saturday, October 23rd from 9 am to 4:30 pm in Durham, ON.  Michael will lead the workshop and topics to be covered include the biology, safe production and handling of raw milk; the legal framework currently required for a cowshare program; and developing, maintaining and managing cowshare member relationships.

We will also be following up with those who completed the May workshop.  Cowshare College – Level II is a half-day workshop, from 9 am to 1 pm, that is the final step in the credentialling process for producers who wish to be on Cow Share Canada’s referral list, the first steps being the completion of the Basics workshop and the second being the successful inspection by an independent inspector.  At this session, more advanced material will be presented, and participants will have an opportunity to bring specific challenges and questions for discussion.”
