South­ern States em­ployee at­tends three-day train­ing

Record Observer - - News -

CENTREVILLE — Melissa Clark, South­ern States Co­op­er­a­tive Inc. – Queen Anne’s Agron­omy Plant, has at­tended a com­pre­hen­sive three-day train­ing pro­gram de­signed to qual­ify re­tail em­ploy­ees as “FeedMaster Cer­ti­fied Feed Spe­cial­ist.”

The rig­or­ous train­ing pro­gram is tied to the South­ern States’ FeedMaster pro­gram and is de­signed to aug­ment the ex­ist­ing knowl­edge base of em­ploy­ees in­volved in ad­vis­ing the co-op’s cus­tomers on is­sues re­lated to car­ing for and feed­ing var­i­ous types of an­i­mals. The pro­gram pro­vides new and up­dated in­for­ma­tion and qual­i­fies for con­tin­u­ing ed­u­ca­tion units by the Amer­i­can Registry of Pro­fes­sional An­i­mal Sci­en­tists, a na­tional or­ga­ni­za­tion that cer­ti­fies an­i­mal sci­en­tists through ex­am­i­na­tion.

Pro­fes­sors from land grant uni­ver­si­ties in the South­ern States ser­vice area, in­dus­try nu­tri­tion­ists, vet­eri­nar­i­ans and South­ern States em­ploy­ees were among those con­duct­ing tech­ni­cal ses­sions dur­ing the pro­gram Clark at­tended.

“With all the re­search and new de­vel­op­ments oc­cur­ring, an­i­mal own­ers need and want the best pos­si­ble coun­sel on feed nu­tri­tion and feed so­lu­tions in gen­eral,” said Rich Sch­nei­der, part of the South­ern States team that de­vel­oped the FeedMaster pro­gram. “FeedMaster pro­grams in­still knowl­edge in our peo­ple, so that we can truly pro­vide peo­ple who know.”
