This year the LCHS Ag Program began to learn about goats.  It turns out that people show goats just like they do cattle and pigs and other livestock!  The kids enjoy working with the docile creatures and they have been a pleasure for many visitors as well.

Farmers have kept a donkey with their goat herds for a long time with the intent of the donkey "protecting" the goats.  Donkeys do not take kindly to predators and become very protective of the goats, so it sounds like the farmers had a pretty good idea.  Mr. & Mrs. C.O. Woody recently volunteered to house two of their animals with our goats to help keep the goats safe.  The minature donkey is named "Mary" and the goat is named "Blue Boy". The animals are settling into there new home nicely and the students love the new additions to the barn!
