    Small- and medium-sized ranchers face significant barriers to sustaining their ranching operations often due to a lack of knowledge and skills, including animal welfare, management, and merchandising. The five-module course proposes a new collaborative model to increase access to information and resources that support the next generation of small- and medium-sized ranchers. This course focuses on enhancing economic efficiency, profitability, and sustainability by establishing partnerships with local veterinarians.
