Effective Livestock Care

Healthier Livestock for More Prosperous Families

With much of the world still reliant on sustenance farming, healthy livestock often makes the difference between proper nutrition and malnourishment. Effective Livestock Care (ELC) helps people better their living conditions by training rural families and sustenance farmers on the basic care and treatment of livestock.

In 29 bi-lingual sessions, Dr. Peter Quesenberry of Christian Veterinary Mission, along with his colleagues Dr. Fred Gardener and Dr. Jean Reed, cover essential topics out of his well-known book “Where There is no Animal Doctor”. ELC uses in-studio lectures supplemented with abundant live, in-field examples, as well as numerous pictures and diagrams, to take full advantage of the video format.
