The agricultural section of the Vocational Training Center at FVS continues to expand and diversity. Recently, 30 of the goats were traded for 2 cows. This leaves a balance of 10 goats. Goats bread quickly and in pairs, so that this number will come back up quickly.
These cows will be bred so that we will be looking forward to calves next summer.
The cows will provide a great source of nourishment (in the form of milk) for the children at FVS and give the children in the program to expand their knowledge and skills of livestock management.
The children are excited about the new animals and are learning the proper care and handling of cattle.
