Applications for the inaugural Texas A&M University International Beef Academy are being accepted. The academy, available exclusively online, will begin in September and continue through July 2019.
“The International Beef Academy will offer an exclusive, customized and advanced learning experience tailored to the educational and professional needs of each participant,” said Dr. Reinaldo Cooke, associate professor in the department of animal science at Texas A&M University in College Station. “Participants will have access to emerging technologies in cattle reproduction, nutrition, genetics, health and welfare related to all phases of beef production, including cutting-edge practices for the quality and safety of beef products.”
The academy will be limited to 30 students and applications will be screened for selection. All of the instruction will be online and there will be nine modules to complete, Cooke said.
