Taking Care of the Business of AgricultureStudy basic business and agriculture through accounting, economics, agronomy, salesmanship and sales management, marketing, communications and organizational behaviour.
You’ll be in the classroom to create budgets and financial statements, and learn to manage farm records. You’ll also practice marketing crop and livestock commodities.
Lakeland’s advantage is that you choose a specialized stream of study—crops, livestock or marketing/communications—to focus your career goals and put you where you want to be.
You’ll live the learning whatever speciality you choose:
- On the crops side, learn to use GPS to map fields. Be out in the student-managed farm fields to learn about soils, crops and fertilizers.
- On the livestock side, create rations using nutritional lessons. Learn about feedlot, cow-calf, swine and dairy management.
- On the marketing communications side focus on occupations in marketing and communications for agricultural companies.
Your agribusiness diploma may also be part of a 2-diplomas-in-3-years package. Start with agribusiness or another 2-year ag program. Stay another year and earn 2 diplomas.
