The Kentucky Horse Council’s (KHC) Livestock Investigation Training Level II will take place July 31 to Aug. 2, at Morehead State University.

Registration is now open to all county and state officials, such as animal control officers, sheriffs, and police officers.

Developed by the KHC in partnership with the Kentucky Cattlemen’s Association with input from experienced enforcement officers, veterinarians, and livestock producers, this three-day course is tailored to the commonwealth of Kentucky’s needs. For 2017, the curriculum has been updated to reflect current accepted animal care standards and the changes in the law that impact those investigating abuse and neglect cases.

The summer training is a Level II training, where attendees will take what they learned in Level I training and further their knowledge of difficult animal behavior, assess body condition scores, identify situations that need intervention, and apply Kentucky statutes to animal cases. Attendees also practice handling and evaluating live horses and livestock as well as examining Kentucky statutes and enforcement procedures. This training also focuses on small ruminants and swine in addition to horses and larger livestock. Revisions to Kentucky statutes on animal welfare in the past few years have been incorporated to ensure that attendees are well-versed on the latest laws and regulations
