    So disorganized and time consuming on non-learning projects that they took it off line mid-course for a while! The information is mostly way out of date and unhealthy but is what the grain and dairy industries want us to believe.

    The course is comprehensive, full of useful information presented in an interesting way. I would recommend it to everyone.
