STANWOOD – The Country Living Expo & Cattlemen’s Winterschool returns Saturday, Jan. 25 at Stanwood High School. Registration is now open, with 175 classes available, including 30 brand new classes.

Conway Feed will again sponsor the Chicken and Duck Egg Weigh Off. Entries are open to everyone. The egg can come from your own flock, purchased eggs, or anywhere you can come up with a larger-than-expected chicken or duck egg. The winner of the largest egg receives 100 pounds of Conway Feed all natural layer pellets. The Fiber Palooza, now in its fourth year, awards prizes in all fiber categories – so gather some fiber from your favorite sheep, alpaca, llama, rabbit or goat to enter into the show.

The early bird registration cost is $75 for adults through December and a subsidized student rate of $10 for students between the ages of 12-18. For those not needing the subsidy the student rate is $40. To register, and for more information, see https://extension.wsu.edu/skagit/CountryLivingExpo/.
