Introducing the New Bison 201 Online Training
The National Bison Association is pleased to announce the follow-up to its popular Bison 101 online training - Bison 201. The online training is free and exclusively available to all NBA Active, Life, Allied Industry and Junior members. Not a NBA member? Please consider joining our association today and join 1,000 other bison farmers and ranchers as we continue to restore the American bison to its native landscape while offering a sustainable ranching model for American farmers and ranchers.
And remember, if you've purchased the Bison 101 Online Training ($29.95), or our Bison Producers' Handbook ($40), you can use those purchase credits towards a NBA Active, Life, Allied Industry membership.
Similar to Bison 101, also free to NBA members, you can take the course at your own pace, on your own schedule. There is no time limit to complete the course and it was designed with busy farmers and ranchers in mind.
Further, Bison 201 includes a variety of worksheets that students can use to customize to their own operations, and also includes video footage on various aspects of the bison business.
The curriculum is as follows:
