Appendix B: List of supplies

Physical shelter is needed for the animals, either a large barn or large huts. This is needed to house all the animals to be used in the training and should be in place prior to training. Construction work should be made to include cages, pens, stalls, milking platforms, stanchions, mangers, waterers, feeders, nesting boxes, brooders, and farrowing crates. The animals should be on hand and housed when the trainees arrive (except the day old chicks).
