The Livestock Selection & Evaluation Certification endorsed by the National Collegiate Livestock Coaches Association requires students to identify and analyze livestock breeds and their external anatomy. They will also be expected to show understanding of selection criteria and major factors considered in livestock evaluation.
...it's extremely critical that we continue to develop competent agricultural career-ready students, both coming straight out of high school and at the college level.
