 TCFA Feedyard Certification

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

 Area Students Complete TCFA Equipment Operation and Maintenance Certification Program

 Amarillo, Texas – October 21, 2014 – Texas Cattle Feeders Association, in collaboration with West Texas A&M University and Texas A&M AgriLife Extension, presented 21 area high school students a certificate and jacket for completing the Equipment Operation and Maintenance portion of the Feedyard Technician Certification Program on Oct. 21 at West Texas A&M University’s Stanley Schaeffer Agriculture Education Learning Lab.

 Students who completed the program are Tessa Wells, Adrian; Ramon Gabino, Adrian; Eric Roberts, Booker; Juan Carlos Rosales, Booker; Benjamin Pantleo, Booker; Cynthia Gonzales, Booker; Landon Carpenter, Dimmit; Alex Machado, Dimmit; Gavin Flores, Dimmit; Bayle Harris, Dimmit; Jose Rocha, Friona; Lee Caywood, Friona; Antonio Adame, Friona; Ethan McLain, Springlake-Earth; Nathan Longoria, Springlake-Earth; Treylr Jackson, Springlake-Earth; Mauro Porras, Springlake-Earth; Robert Quilimaco III, White Deer; Braden Clay, White Deer; Clayton Pipes, White Deer; and Cuyler McAnnally, White Deer.

 Feedyard Technician program participants  were tested on important equipment operation and maintenance skills, such as welding techniques, oxyacetylene torch cutting methods and setup and shut down safety. The students were trained on safety and operation of the equipment through personally driving a skid loader and a wheel loader at the Warren CAT facility in Amarillo on Sept. 23-24.

 To complete the certification process, the students were tested over their skills with a written exam. They were also interviewed by TCFA officials on topics covered in the training.

 Completion of this certification program enables students to be better prepared to obtain employment within a feedyard with a basic understanding of the knowledge and skills necessary to be an asset to the operation.

 Students in the program are identified by their Agricultural Science Teacher, feedyard managers or have expressed interest to be accepted into the program. They should be enrolled in at least one high school agricultural class each semester, participate in extra-curricular activities such as FFA, have a supervised agricultural experience project, and they are required to either job shadow or have an internship within the industry before receiving a High School Diploma.

 Individuals who work in the fed beef industry have one of the most important jobs in the world – to produce food for a growing domestic and global population. The vitality of having young people with a desire to work in a feedyard setting, especially in the TCFA-area of Texas, Oklahoma and New Mexico where 30 percent of the nation’s beef is produced, is crucial in the future success of the industry
