Extension Program, “Beyond Chickens”, Will Be Presented Tuesday In The Pulaski County Courthouse

An upcoming MU Extension course is attempting to look beyond chickens toward other specialty fowl.

The program, titled “Beyond Chickens,” is to be held on Tuesday, March 19th from 5 to 6:30PM at the Pulaski County Courthouse. Eric Meusch, Field Specialist in Livestock at the MU Extension Office, says the class covers a wide range of specialty fowl.

Meusch says he believes the rise in interest can possibly be attributed to those who are looking to eat meat, but cannot eat the meat from mammals. Interest in other fowl could also be for their eggs, especially with fowl such as guineas or quails. You can register for this event by calling the extension office at 573-774-4766.
