Agricultural Business Feed and Grain Worker. Ohio's Competency Analysis Profile.
Ohio State Univ., Columbus. Vocational Instructional Materials Lab.
This comprehensive and verified employer competency list was developed from a modified DACUM (Developing a Curriculum) process involving business, industry, labor, and community agency representatives from Ohio. This competency list contains nine units (with or without subunits), competencies, and competency builders that identify the occupational, academic, and employability skills needed to enter the agricultural business as a feed and grain worker. Within the outline are three levels of items: core (required, the basis for state vocational competency tests); advancing (needed to advance in an occupation); and futuring (needed to enter and remain in a given occupation 3 to 4 years from now). The units cover the following: (1) general safety precautions; (2) grain; (3) feed; (4) maintenance of facilities and grounds; (5) store sales; (6) agricultural mechanics; (7) marketing; (8) business management; and (9) employability skills.
