Livestock Guardian Dog Program Accepting Applications

New opportunity for poultry farmers. Apply to receive a Livestock Guardian Dog (LGD) puppy & training! This year FACT is partnering with a current Fund-a-Farmer grant recipient to place four LGD puppies with poultry farmers who raise their birds humanely (one of seven certifications is required). Selected farmers will receive a LGD puppy and attend a free weekend training session this summer in Wisconsin, along with additional educational resources and expert technical assistance. Limited funds for travel are available. Check out the LGD Project webpage for the complete details, including guidelines and application form. Applications must be received by the end of the day on June 17, 2016 to be considered for the award. Please contact Larissa McKenna with questions!
