Ranch Management Option

Agriculture Ranch Management Option

Wide open opportunities. Now you can pursue the cutting-edge training you’ll need to make your home ranch flourish – or follow your passion into a life-long career on one of the region’s lucrative ranch operations.

This 18 month Ranch Management option is tailored to give you hands-on, in-depth knowledge of South Dakota’s best ranching practices. You’ll learn beef and sheep production, livestock marketing, anatomy and nutrition, grazing practices, range ecology, breeding, basic facility construction, and more! As a student, you can expect to take classes in our brand new Ag complex, as well as travel to local operations for direct experience.

To make sure you are ready for anything—and build your business connections-we also send you out on two internships.

We welcome questions! Contact faculty or apply now.
