Agricultural Operations
The successful farmer will continue to be a key person in the U.S. economy, with the advantages of outdoor living and working independently that few people are privileged to enjoy. The agriculture industry needs trained workers in its many areas, such as farms, ranches, feed services, and government agencies. Employees must have proper training in order to assist in the various aspects of a successful operation.

In this program, students will learn to:

• Operate farm equipment

• Process and handle livestock using up-to-date equipment and livestock holding facilities
