Distance learning 'to help dairy workers'

schedule 28th January 2011 by Virtual College in Virtual College Last updated on 7th July 2016

People working in the US beef and dairy industry now stand to benefit from e-learning technology.

A new program has been developed between the National Cattlemen's Beef Association, the American Association of Bovine Practitioners and Livestock Marketing Association and the Beef Cattle Institute at Kansas State University.

The intention is to provide workers who reside in remote rural areas with all the information and tools they need to care for livestock.

Nels Lindberg, a consulting veterinarian, commented that the net-based system has had a positive effect on the industry.

"This distance education tool is great for those clients that I see routinely and those that I cannot reach as often as I would like," he said.

Multimedia modules for The Animal Care Training Program can be streamed in English and Spanish versions.

Last month, Ruth Spellman, chief executive at the Chartered Management Institute, commented that online learning courses can help workers build on their existing qualifications.
