This course is designed to acquaint students with different methods for merchandising livestock and with strategies for adding value to products produced from livestock. Students will learn new ways to promote a farming operation. Required visits to Animal Educational Units outside of normal class time and student must provide own transportation. Two required mandatory Saturday events. The animal auction held on the 2nd Saturday of April and the Open House held either one or two Saturdays (varies depending on the Spring Holiday) prior to the animal auction.

A major component of the ANS 240 and ANS 240A, Livestock Merchandising, is the livestock auction that the class conducts at the end of the semester on a Saturday. In the last revision of the course we neglected to add to the catalog description that there are two required Saturday events that are animportant part of the class-the Open House held one or two Saturdays before the auction, and the auction itself. Because these two required events are outside the normal class time, we need to add that important information to the course catalog description so students are aware of this requirement when they register for the course.
