Spots Still Open for Livestock Investigation Training
Kentucky Ag Connection - 05/11/2018

The Kentucky Horse Council's Livestock Investigation Training is back this spring and will be held at two locations across Kentucky, Western Kentucky University and Morehead State University. Registration for both trainings is now open to all county and state officials, such as Animal Control Officers, Sheriffs, and Police Officers.

Developed by the Kentucky Horse Council (KHC) in partnership with the Kentucky Cattlemen's Association (KCA) with input from experienced enforcement officers, veterinarians, and livestock producers, this three-day course is tailored to the needs of the Commonwealth. The curriculum was updated in 2017 to keep up with changing animal welfare laws and standards.

Both 2018 offerings are Level I trainings, where attendees will learn how to handle horses and cattle, assess body condition score in both species, identify situations that need intervention, and apply Kentucky statutes to animal cases. Attendees will gain hands-on experience to best prepare them for cases in the field. The Western Kentucky training will be held May 14-16 and the Morehead State Training will be held June 25-27.
