Poultry seminar in Black Creek next month

Black Creek Farm & Feed Supply is hosting a free poultry seminar, “Top 10 Challenges for Small Flock Production,” on June 25, 7 p.m.

This one-hour presentation will be full of science-based detail, but will provide practical, take-home tips for the successful raising of poultry.

The presenter is Paul Goerzen, with 18 years’ experience as a poultry nutritionist.

He holds an animal/poultry science degree from UBC and a graduate degree from University of Alberta in avian reproductive physiology.

Steve Nixon, owner of Black Creek Farm and Feed, will also be available to answer questions about coop construction, bedding, and supplies.

The store will be open after the workshop, with BCFF offering specials on various poultry-related products.

There is no fee to attend, but seating is limited.

To reserve your seat, phone 250-337-8922 by June 20.
