Illinois Occupational Skill Standards and Credentialing Council, Carbondale.
This document, which is intended as a guide for workforce preparation program providers, details the Illinois occupational skill standards for programs preparing students for employment in occupations in the beef production cluster. The document begins with a brief overview of the Illinois perspective on occupational skill standards and credentialing, the process used to develop the skill standards, assumptions underlying the standards, and performance skill levels. Presented next are skill standards for 63 tasks typically performed in the following areas of beef production: accident and emergency procedures; feeding and watering; sanitation; calving; neonatal and young stock care; restraint and behavior; other health/production procedures; cattle identification, parasite/pest control; moving and breeding cattle; and record keeping. Each skill standard statement contains the following components: (1) the actual skill standard (including the conditions of performance, work to be performed, and performance criteria); (2) performance elements; and (3) assessment criteria. Appended are the following: a diagram of the site for administering injections to cattle; a beef production glossary; a glossary of education-related terms; lists of Illinois Occupational Skill Standards and Credentialing Council, Agricultural and Natural Resources Subcouncil, and Beef Production Cluster Development Committee members; and a list of necessary workplace skills.
