What are the roles of livestock producers in producing a safe food supply that is produced with humane livestock practices and environmental stewardship?

Students will examine the food safety continuum as it pertains to livestock production, biosecurity measures for a productive livestock farm or ranch, become aware of consumer concerns about livestock production and be able to articulate their perspective with their peers and the public.

Students will complete their own Food Safety Continuum poster, complete biosecurity surveys, debate livestock production practices and survey consumers to discover their perceptions of livestock production.

This unit is brought to you by Heather Thomas (CTE) with support from the CTE Online curriculum leadership team and detailed coordination provided by the Course Team Lead Gayle Nicholls-Ali.
