Valuable Learning Resources at Youth Animal Care Training Website
One such resource is Kansas State University’s Beef Cattle Institute’s special section specifically for youth. The Institute’s Director Dan Thompson shares more about this special website.
Thompson: “The Youth Animal Care Training website is a website that allows youth in America — high school age and younger — to go on the website and they can learn at their own pace or own time about Beef Quality Assurance and is parlayed from Beef Quality Assurance to humane equine management and into dairy beef quality assurance. So it is really an educational tool.”
The learning modules are free for youth and are available in both English and Spanish. Thompson shares more about the umbrella website, the Beef Cattle Institute that offers this special youth training.
Thompson: “We started the Beef Institute at Kansas State in 2007. This tool was developed by farmers and ranchers and veterinarians across the U.S. for farmers and ranchers and veterinarians across the United States that are woking with beef cattle.”
