WVSU Extension Service to Discuss Hide Tanning at Virtual ‘Ag Talk Tuesday’ September 14
INSTITUTE, W.Va. – West Virginia State University (WVSU) Extension Service’s monthly Ag Talk Tuesday series continues Tuesday, September 14, at 6 p.m. EST with a discussion on hide tanning.

WVSU Extension Service will be joined by Dr. Annette Ericksen, owner of Twin Maples Farm in Milton, West Virginia, who will elaborate on hide processing for value-added products with small ruminants – livestock such as sheep and goats – and beyond.

“We will utilize natural processes to create leather for a variety of end products,” said Ericksen.

The free Ag Talk Tuesday series began last year and takes place the second Tuesday of each month. Participants register to join the live event and can submit questions ahead of time through the WVSU Extension Service Facebook and Twitter platforms or via email.

To participate in the Zoom sessions, register at wvstateu.edu/ANR. Registering once provides access to the full schedule of sessions.

While live questions will be answered during each session, participants are also encouraged to submit questions, as well as ideas for future topics, ahead of time to extension@wvstateu.edu.
