About this Program

The program prepares students who are engaged in, or who are in the process of becoming established in, farming. As the business of farming continues to change, the challenge becomes one of finding the best source of good farm management education. The practical "hands on" applications taught in the Farm Operations and Management courses enable students to make sound management decisions based on financial analysis and production information, utilizing computer applications.

The program is scheduled for two abbreviated semesters from early November through late March for two consecutive years. This enables the students to be on the farm during the production year.
