We offer a deliberately structured program with three academic options to give students maximum flexibility while ensuring they are prepared for whatever career they choose to pursue:
Dairy Business Management Option
Gain knowledge and training in dairy farm business management to optimize dairy cattle performance and well-being, utilize electronic data, manage farm finances and land resources and implement environmental planning.
Dual Emphasis Option
Combine your interest in dairy science with another companion major that allows you to diversify and gain additional knowledge in such areas as agribusiness, agricultural education, communications, and livestock management.
Science Pre-Vet Option
Prepare for advanced training for careers in animal research or veterinary medicine to improve animal and human nutrition, genetics, and biosecurity.
