United Farmers of Alberta (UFA) - Cattle College View More ∇
The United Farmers of Alberta hosted its “UFA Cattle College” at the Vermilion Campus on December 2013.

Western Ranch & Cow Horse and Animal Science Technology students joined local producers attending the event.

The following Industry speakers provided presentations on cattle market outlook, cattle nutrition and farm/ranch managing options.
  • Brian Perillat (manager of CanFax)
  • Barry Yaremcio (beef and forage specialist with Alberta Agriculture)
  • Marlene Henley (senior credit analyst from UFA)
  • Curt Pate (author of Ranch Horsemanship and renowned stockmanship trainer).
In the afternoon Curt Pate provided a live cattle handling demonstration in the equine centre. We would like to thank UFA for inviting our students to this fantastic learning opportunity and providing lunch. Our students thoroughly enjoyed the day.
Building bridges with AST & CT students View More ∇
The Crop Technology (first year) and the Animal Science Technology students shared a team building exercise in their Agricultural Communication CO138 class.
Instructor Jamie Holdstock split the students into groups and set them the task of designing the greatest load bearing bridge structure using only newspaper and masking tape.

Once the bridges were constructed their load bearing durability was tested with stacks of heavy text books. The groups competed to see whose bridge design had the best structural integrity to burden the heaviest load.

Ag students get hands on.. and Gas Masks on!! View More ∇
Students in CO 138 – Agricultural Communications stepped outside their comfort zone thanks to staff from the Lakeland College Emergency Training Centre.
It was a hands on (and gas mask on) experience of the nationally renowned Emergency Training Centre facility based at Lakeland College.

The exercise provided the students with Emergency rescue approach and procedure to safety. Further to this the exercise addressed an underlying theme of the course to encourage students to do things that they may find difficult. It's hoped that the experience will also reduce challenges such as public speaking.

Check out the great photos of the 2011 and the 2013 class.
