Educator Beef Tours

Teacher Farm-to-Fork Beef Tour & Curriculum Training

Beef Council

For the first time, New York Agriculture in the Classroom and the New York Beef Council are collaborating on the "Meat Your Beef" Tours to offer an exciting food system training for teachers across the state. If you are interested in learning more about the meat production industry in New York, have questions about how beef cattle are fed, cared for, and marketed, and want to give a first-hand perspective on food production to your students, register for the workshop closest to you.

All registered K-12 teachers will start the experience learning about how to incorporate the food system in their curriculum, and receive books and a resource bundle with a value of over $75. In addition, teachers will receive 6 hours of CTLE credit for their participation in the experience.

This training is free of charge and is applicable for teachers in grades K-12. All teachers must be registered by May 29th.
