The Swine Management program will prepare students for employment as general managers, herdsmen, or managers of breeding, farrowing, nursery or finishing units, as well as other specialized careers involving the management, production and marketing of swine. In addition to technical agriculture subjects in both crop and livestock production, mechanical skills and farm business management also are included. Supervised occupational experience in swine management for college credit is an integral part of this program.
In addition to the broad base of study, the A.A.S. degree program includes 19 weeks of a paid internship work experience at a related agricultural production swine confinement facility.*
