Livestock Production and Management E-Degree
Lake Area Technical College’s Agriculture E-Degree program option, Livestock Production and Management, combines the studies of large animal and ranch management.

During this option, students will gain an understanding of various topics including soil and crop science, safety, animal science, commodities, animal health, basic animal husbandry, breeding practices, farm management, equine science, sheep and goat production, swine science, dairy science, fertilizers, soil and water management, nutrition, plant management, beef production, herd management, forages and grasses, milk production, marketing, and more. Also included are two supervised internships, during which students will obtain beneficial, hands-on experiences.
How does an E-Degree work?
As a Livestock Production and Management E-Degree student, you’ll take online courses through Lake Area Tech’s eLearning system. Most of your time learning will be done at home, so you’ll only spend limited time on campus. But when you do, you’ll be learning in our spacious Ag Center!
Why an E-Degree?
Lake Area Tech E-Degrees are “hybrid” – an innovative blend of distance and on-campus learning. What’s great about that is you can keep your day job (work, raise kids) and still get a degree. With hybrid education, you get maximum flexibility to study when and where you want, but you’ll still get the chance to learn on-campus with Lake Area Tech instructors on selected projects.
