Johnson, Boyd C.
Designed to provide instructional materials for use by vocational agriculture teachers, this unit on feeding livestock contains nine lessons based upon competencies needed to be a livestock producer. The lessons in this unit cover the importance of good feeding practices, the identification of nutritional needs and the composition of feeds for farm livestock, how livestock use their food, providing vitamins and minerals for livestock, balancing rations for livestock, using protein supplements and forages, and the importance of providing clean water for livestock. Each lesson contains the following: (1) a performance objective, (2) teaching-learning activities, (3) supplementary materials, and (4) a criterion-referenced measure. Suggestions for using problem-solving procedures, resource persons, field trips, and audio-visual aids are outlined in the section on teaching-learning activities provided for each lesson. Transparency masters of charts, tables, and illustrations are included in most lessons. (Related documents contain similar instructional materials on breeding livestock, livestock judging, dairy housing and equipment, tobacco production, and corn production--see note.) (MN)
