Career Goals:

I am currently in the two year Ag Institute program studying Field Crop Technology. Following graduation with my two year degree I will start in the fall taking classes to achieve my Bachelor’s degree. With a Bachelor degree in Agronomy science I hope to obtain a job with a company that deals chemical, seed, and fertilizer. I would like to help farmers make correct and accurate decisions on inputs so a high yield can be achieved. Aside from being an agronomist I would like to own my own swine operation one day. By working with pigs on the weekend and every other chance I get I have developed a passion for the industry. By working on both sides of the Agriculture industry it is easy for me to see the bridge that connects agronomy and swine production. My dreams and or career goals are to be an agronomist and a swine farmer.
