The Agriculture program offers several degree tracks for students which include Animal Science, Ag Business, Plant and Soil Science, and Precision Ag. Certificate, Associate in Applied Arts and Sciences degrees (AAAS) and transfer options are available.
Agriculture Science combines the fields of biology and chemistry with a practical understanding of livestock production and management. The primary objectives of the program are to offer students technical knowledge in the areas of animal health and disease prevention, feed and nutrition practices, livestock and carcass evaluation and general agriculture safety practices and management. These objectives are accomplished with lecture/discussion periods, lab exercises, and field trips to production enterprise areas. Business management is emphasized in each area of study. The Agriculture Science curriculum is reviewed by an advisory committee composed of local and regional industry members and adheres to national and state skill standards.
