New York Agriculture in the Classroom and the New York Beef Council collaborate on the "Meat Your Beef" Tours, offering an exciting food system training for teachers across the state. Kindergarten- grade 12 teachers learn about incorporating the food system into their curriculum. During these tours teachers will learn more about the meat production industry in New York, how beef cattle are fed, cared for, and marketed, and see to a first-hand perspective on food production.
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 this free-of-charge experience.
