Back Yard Poultry Production at Butler County Field Day - Sept 6th

Greg Drake II, County Extension Agent for Agriculture and Natural Resources

This year’s Butler County Field Day will feature a demonstration on small scale or back yard poultry production.  Interest in food security has been on the rise lately and many people are interested in keeping a few chickens for their own use or perhaps to sell eggs to their neighbors or at farmer’s markets.  A poultry specialist from the University of Kentucky will be in Morgantown, KY on September 6th to discuss the enterprise and answer questions about raising poultry.  The demonstration is part of the Butler County Field Day.  This event is free to attend and will also feature demonstrations on home composting, local foods, and dealing with animal mortality.  The program begins at 4:00 p.m.  A pork chop meal will be provided for those in attendance.  There will be door prizes and registration gifts for kids that attend so make plans now.

For more information, contact the Butler County Extension Office at 112 E GL Smith Street, Morgantown, or call 270-526-3767.

Educational programs of the Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service serve all people regardless of race, color, age, sex, religion, disability, or national origin.
