For the third consecutive year, the Kentucky Horse Council (KHC), in association with the Kentucky Cattlemen’s Association (KCA), will offer Level I Livestock Investigation Training, which will take place May 11-13 in Morehead, Ky. The three-day intensive hands-on training prepares animal control and peace officers for the investigation and case management of equine and livestock situations.

Unique to the Commonwealth, this training was developed by experienced enforcement officers, veterinarians, livestock producers, and KHC professionals. Throughout the Level I course, attendees learn how to handle horses and cattle, assess body condition score in both species, identify situations that need intervention, and apply Kentucky statutes to animal cases.

"Teaching our county officials how to properly handle horse investigations is a huge service to the horse community," said KHC board president Anna Zinkhon. "This training teaches officers how to respond to animals running at large and in neglectful situations. It also provides guidance on the thoughtful utilization of community resources, which is a vitally important aspect of handling large animal cases."

Conducted with support from Morehead State University (MSU), guest instruction will be provided by experts in Kentucky animal abuse statutes and livestock management and faculty from MSU
