The curriculum is designed to prepare students for leadership careers in livestock production and related industries. Courses in horse, swine, poultry, sheep, dairy, beef cattle and companion, zoo and lab animal production and management may be elected, providing the opportunity for special or additional training in the dynamic livestock and husbandry technology (production) areas. Through course selection, students may prepare for general or livestock farming, management, business, or science, or elect the pre-veterinary courses preparatory for specialization. Elective selection permits special training for work with feed companies, meat animal, milk, egg, or poultry production, managerial or marketing groups, other educational agencies, supply and equipment business, agricultural extension services, agricultural communication, public relations, and various organizations associated with agriculture.
