Livestock Ethics--A Lesson for High School Students
A livestock ethics curriculum was developed in PowerPoint format for presentation to high school agriculture classes. The curriculum defines livestock ethics and describes four questions written by Goodwin (1996) that can be used to determine whether practices related to raising, training, and grooming youth livestock projects are ethical or unethical. A pretest/posttest was also written to assess the change in knowledge related to animal ethics. The results indicate that the improvement in scores from the pretest to the posttest was significant (t = 3.438, df = 67, p<0.001), with high school students posting an average knowledge increase of 9.9%.
