Kids bored as summer winds to an end, I’m Susan Allen this is Open Range and after the break I’ll tell you about a online animal care training course for kids high school age and under. When I read about the Beef Cattle Institute new online Youth Animal Care Training program with it’s goal of empowering children and teens to be role models for the ranching industry, I wondered if it might have helped an extended member of our family a few years back who became flustered when forced to defend his family’s ranching business at a camp that consisted of Southern California kids. You see the Youth Animal Care training program is modeled after the highly acclaimed Beef Quality Assurance, Dairy and Humane Equine Management courses where over 8000 people to date have earned their certifications. The Beef Cattle Institute was started in 2007 with a mission of keeping the ag industry up to date with the most current research and education available so that producers can be successful . The new online Youth Animal Care Training program has already issued 170 youth certifications since it began in February so if you got a future rancher or wanna, be whose bored as summer winds down visit the animalcaretraining.org web site to see how your young one can take part in this free program offered throughout the Beef Cattle Institute at Kansas State University. .
