    Course that provides students the training and ability to enhance public literacy of domestic animal agriculture. Class participants will work together to develop a pre-recorded podcast called “Ruminate On This”, which will serve as a public engagement platform to connect scientists with communities that care to learn more about animals in agriculture. Students will identify gaps in scientific knowledge, pinpoint common misconceptions, survey and interview researchers and concerned community members, develop narratives for recording, provide narration, edit audio recordings, respond to public questions and comments via social media, and perform routine assessments. Podcasts will be centered on the dairy industry and may include discussions focused contemporary farm management, sustainability initiatives, antibiotic resistance, dairy foods and human health, population growth and dairy food security, and climate change.
