Livestock Technician Programs

A Livestock Technician’s goal is to care for livestock in dairy, beef, and specialty livestock situations. Livestock Technicians learn to test feeds and feeding methods, animal husbandry, record management software programs, breeding and genetics, and what nourishes livestock efficiently and economically. Livestock Technicians gain a thorough understanding of science and husbandry through participating in on farm learning labs on 30 CVTC cooperating lab farms.

Livestock Technician graduates must have technical, management, and economic training to be successful in herd management. Cooperative education and hands-on experiences, combined with formal classroom instruction, provide an excellent background to gain access into these industries.
