Agriculture Dairy Option
Be a part of the future. Today’s dairy operators have had to expand and update, and they are in great need of skilled assistants! After completing our 18-month option, you’ll have the knowledge and experience to work at, manage-or even own-a large, state-of-the-art dairy operation.
With the demand for producing a higher quantity and quality of milk, dairy operators must be able to make educated decisions about production, nutrition, and health. Most importantly, they must be able to keep accurate and consistent records on the dairy herd. Our program offers you active, hands-on training to make the most of your time. You will also be sent out on two high quality internships.
