Here on the plantation, we provide these and many like resources for our employees as part of our Ongoing Studies Program offered in conjunction with Nidus Biomes. A few of the skills we look for and offer continuing education benefits for full-time employees include:
The Animal Care Training (ACT) program is an online training site for beef, dairy, equine, transportation, livestock marketers and a center for online continuing education for the American Association of Bovine Practitioners (AABP).
Web-based audiovisual training modules in English and Spanish feature topics such as animal husbandry, animal welfare, environmental stewardship and food safety practices. The site is currently home to over 100 online training modules and 200 continuing education modules for veterinarians. The ACT website has been named the national training center for beef and dairy producers by the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association.
This is a great resource for those new to horses or wanting to better themselves for their own. Follow the link below to a list of Free and Certification courses to get started.
