Ohio Heartland Sheep Improvement Association Fall Tour

October 12th, 2009 · No Comments

Ohio Heartland Sheep Improvement Association is sponsoring a fall tour to the Knox Co. area on Saturday October 24, 2009.   The first stop will be at the Frank Stahl farm of Frazeysburg where they raise Shorthorn cattle, Percheron draft horses, goats, and Katahdin hair sheep.  Mixed species grazing along with rotational grazing practices are used on this farm.   The second stop will be at the Andy Yoder farm of Fredericktown area.  The Yoder farm has primarily Dorset/Polypay crosses but uses blackface/meat type sires.  Grass seedings utilizing oats and turnips can be viewed.  Holstein bulls/heifers are raised in hoop houses which double as lambing pens in the winter.  Pastures are enclosed with wooden post/woven wire fences along with non-electric temporary fences.

OHSIA will be carpooling from the Wooster area for the tour.  The tour is open to anyone who is interested and there is no charge.  Lunch will be  at a restaurant in Bladensburg.  For more info contact Kathy Bielek at 330.264.5281/bielek@bright.net or Suzie Gortner at 419.869.7353/skg2ewe@verizon.net.
