Food Animal Concerns Trust (FACT) is awarding scholarships of up to $400 for livestock and poultry farmers to attend conferences and other educational events — including virtual events — to learn knowledge, skills, and best practices related to humane animal management, business and farm finance, and/or value-added production processes.
Scholarships will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis to eligible farmers until funding is depleted.
Current livestock and poultry farmers who reside in the U.S. and express an intention to learn about humane animal husbandry methods are eligible. Farmers must own or be employed by a farm that raises livestock (ruminants, swine) and/or poultry.
Specific conferences are listed online, or applicants can propose other events for consideration. The list of events is updated throughout the year.
