A few important changes:
Mr. Doug Owens, Illinois Department of Agriculture, will be assuming responsibility for the agency's program.
Dr. Morgan Hayes has moved to University of Kentucky as an Extension Engineer Specialist and Assistant Professor.
Similar to last year, we are clustering all training sessions into February 2017 (plus one session at the Pork Expo on January 31). Sessions will be held around the state, on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
Registration will open on December 1 2016. You can register by phone or online.
Online training is up and running. If you cannot make a workshop, this is a viable alternative and satisfies IDOA requirements for the training component, but if over 1,000 Animal Units you will still need to take the Exam. To register and get started go to the CLM Training Page, scroll to the bottom, and select the Online Training Registration option.
