October 11, 2012

Animal control officers, sheriff deputies and others interested in farm animal care are encouraged to attend one of four Animal Agriculture 101 classes held across the state in November.

In addition to farm animal care, Animal Ag 101 provides attendees with a basic understanding of production practices, as well as creates a resource for local animal shelters and officials who deal with animal care complaints. Sessions will include information from experts in the fields of cattle, equine, swine, poultry, sheep and goats.

Qualifying occupations may receive continuing education credits for the course, and all attendees will receive a certificate for five hours of instruction.

Each session is scheduled from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Session dates and venues are:

  • Nov. 8 – Tuscaloosa
    Law Enforcement Academy, 7601 Robert Cardinal Road
     
  • Nov. 15 – Madison
    Tennessee Valley Research and Extension Center, 9494 Experimental Loop
     
  • Nov. 27 – Mobile
    John Archer Agricultural Center, 1070 Schillinger Road N.
     
  • Nov. 29 – Auburn
    Ham Wilson Arena, 650 S. Donahue Drive
     

Registration is $15 per person and includes lunch. To register, visit ALVMA.com or call (334) 395-0086.

Animal Ag 101 is sponsored by the Alabama Coalition for Farm Animal Care and Well-Being, of which the Alabama Farmers Federation is a member.
