Beef and Sheep Producer. 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 11 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 beef and sheep producer. 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) animal care; (3) genetics, reproduction, and breeding; (4) waste handling and disposal; (5) nutrition, feeds, and feeding; (6) herd health; (7) marketing; (8) business management; (9) agricultural mechanics; (10) crop/forage production; and (11) employability skills.
