Wolfe’s Neck Center – Draft Power Workshop & Demonstration

Not everyone is burning fuel and using tractors to get the job done around the farm. Some farmers still work their land the old fashion way, with horses, oxen and walk-behind or ride-along equipment. In this workshop & demo, we will learn how the farmers communicate with, instruct and train oxen for farming from former Wolfe’s Neck educator and program participant Katie Josephs and her 4-H team. They will introduce their team of oxen to us and teach us how they are rigged up for work, and how they respond to commands. We’ll take a hay ride up to our vegetable plot and see the action begin as the oxen plow up a few rows!
