Cow/Calf 30 is a part of the PAA curriculum and focuses on Beef Support Systems. The course consists of 30-40 assignments, a Resource Binder final project, and hands-on skills.

Learners in our agriculture courses will complete the OATS farm safety online program, developed by the Saskatchewan Safety Council.
