On July 14th, 5 members of the Chatham County Youth Livestock Team travelled to Raleigh to tour two of the NC State educational units. Our day begin at the NC State Small Ruminant Education Unit with a tour led by unit manager, Nicolette Wolf. The team learned about the various breeds at the unit, artificial insemination protocols, newborn processing, feeds and rations, shearing, and were able to watch a hoof trimming demonstration. The team then travelled to NC State’s Main Campus for an informal tour and lunch. After lunch, we visited the NC State Feed Mill Education Unit for a tour led by Marissa Cohen, Animal Food Safety Specialized Extension Agent, and Dr. Adam Fahrenholz, NC State Feed Milling Professor. During this tour, the team was able to walk through the processes of feed milling from ingredient arrival to finished product. Each process was discussed including receiving, grinding, mixing, pelleting, bagging, and the control system. Our final stop was at the Howling Cow Creamery for a sweet treat to finish the day.

Big thank you to our guides for a wonderful, educational day!
