Chicken Processing Workshop, June 22

Chicken Processing Workshop
UNH Cooperative Extension
Chichester, NH
Saturday, June 22, 2013
2 sessions: 8 – 10 am, or 11 am – 1 pm

There will be two sessions to choose from on June 22, 2013 at a farm in Chichester, NH. The first will be from 8:00 am – 10:00 am. The second workshop runs from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm.  Once you have registered on-line, you will receive a letter with directions to the farm.

This workshop is for anyone considering or already raising chickens for meat. You will learn hands-on knowledge and build confidence in the proper processing of a chicken in a humane and efficient manner. This workshop will be operating under an approved protocol from the UNH Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC), and taught by Victor Huse, a 3rd generation backyard livestock processing professional.

Participants should bring a cooler with ice, wear closed-toe shoes, and clothes that can get soiled and wet. Youth (age 14 or older) may participate with written permission and must be accompanied by an adult.

Fee: There is a $50 charge covering hands-on instruction, materials, and a live chicken that the participant will bring home. Pre-registration and a $35.00 non-refundable deposit are required as space is strictly limited. The balance of $15.00 is due on the day of the workshop.

Register online and pay on-line, or send a check made payable to: UNHCE and mail to: UNH Cooperative Extension, BSC Office, Attn: Chickens #14910, Taylor Hall, 59 College Road, Durham, NH 03824.
