Our Oct 20 Sheep and Goat 101 event is now at capacity and closed to additional entries. Please watch this space for our next event in the spring of 2019.

In February 2018, the Taste of Lamb event had great food…lamb and more. Here’s the scene:

 About 80 Hampshire and Suffolk cross sheep were sheared by Loren Opstedahl (majority) and participants (minority) in the sheep shearing clinic held at Ahualoa Hog Farm in September 2017.  See our shearing equipment loan policy if you need to shear your own sheep. 

 

 Ray Aina whistled and guided his dog to gather a herd of goats. They did many other herding jobs inside and outside the corral. It was held in June at Paahana Livestock corral.

 

 What do we have available in Hawaii?

Events

HSGA invites the sheep and goat farmers to attend our Sheep and Goat Care 101 event. It will be held at two different locations and times to accommodate those living on the Hilo or Kona side of Big Island. The directions to the locations will be emailed to those who register for the event. For all those who attended the Taste of Lamb dinner last February, you are already members and therefore the event charge is $5. All non-members will be charged $25.
