The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) requires that owner or the person (designated by the owner) who has operational responsibilities of the concentrated animal feeding operation (CAFO) located in the dairy outreach program area (DOPA):
The DOPA area includes Bosque, Comanche, Erath, Hamilton, Hopkins, Johnson, Rains, and Wood Counties.
The Environmental Quality Management of Animal Feeding Operations Curriculum is comprised of 10 modules. Successful completion by correctly answering all test questions for each module provides one hour of initial or continuing education training required by the TCEQ.
Lessons provide research based objective education and information on effective manure, mortality and process generated wastewater management from livestock and poultry operations to protect air and water quality. Participants will learn the various animal waste handling, storage, treatment and utilization processes and systems, best management practices and available technologies to reduce air and water pollution from animal feeding operations.
To take exams and get credit for the course you'll need to enroll and pay a $75 registration fee. This registration fee is valid for one year from the date of course enrollment.
