TCFA graduates feedyard technicians

Throughout the month of April, 148 students representing 35 schools from the Texas Panhandle completed Texas Cattle Feeders Association’s (TCFA) Spring 2022 Feedyard Technician Program.  

The hands-on program is a collaboration between TCFA, West Texas A&M University and Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Services and provides high school juniors and seniors the knowledge and skills needed to prepare them for a potential career in the fed cattle industry.  

​Because no two jobs are the same on a feedyard, the program covers different career paths. Spring participants learn and practice proper cattle care including safe handling techniques, the administration of vaccines and implants and Beef Quality Assurance requirements. Students also put their skills to the test in a mock-interview with industry leaders. Whereas fall participants discover the ins and outs of machinery operations along with facility maintenance and repairs.  

If you are interested in potentially hiring students who have participated in the program, please contact Brady Miller at brady@tcfa.org or Rachel Hernandez at rachel@tcfa.org, or call (806) 358-3681.
