Agricultural Technology
Agricultural professionals, including farmers and ranchers, must be highly knowledgeable in all aspects of agricultural operations, including business and finance, to be successful in today’s global agricultural economy.

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 requires skilled managers and workers in its many areas, such as farms, ranches, feed services, and government agencies.
