Coming from a small, rural town in east-central Missouri, I never would have imaged myself interning in an office near the nation’s Capitol.
Originally I was in route to becoming a zoo veterinarian, then to a farrier, to an equine vet, as well as considering equestrian management. The common ground: agriculture.
An agriculture student can study in a variety of disciplines such as animal sciences, entomology, plant sciences, food science and marketing.
All I really have to offer is a passion to learn as much as I can about the industry and an equal desire to share what I have learned with you.
Pursuing a degree in agriculture might be intimidating to those who didn’t grow up on a farm or have production agriculture experience, but don’t let that deter you!
I could dispute or complain about the stereotypes associated with the millennial generation, but I want to highlight how they can benefit agriculture.
