Ohio Farm Bureau is teaming up with Ohio State University to help law enforcement, local humane officers, wildlife officers, firefighters, animal control officers and other first responders gain a basic understanding of farm animal behavior and handling so they can be better prepared for incidents involving livestock.
The Animal Agriculture 202 course was made possible by a grant from the Animals for Life Foundation. Participants can expect to learn about the following: Basic farm animal behavior and handling, personal safety issues, roadway accidents involving farm animals, field euthanasia methods, tranquilization of at-large animals and pre-planning for a livestock incident.
The daylong seminar will be held April 12 at the Fawcett Center in Columbus. The $25 registration fee includes lunch. Space is limited and the registration deadline is March 30.
