A unique, hands-on learning experience will be available in the Spring of 2020
This groundbreaking course will be offered to students attending the U of MN College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences (CFANS) as well as to U of MN Morris students. Thanks to a generous gift from AgCountry Farm Credit Services, a portion of the course fees are covered.
The goal for this course is to allow students to see firsthand how production systems develop, and to learn from the agriculturalists operating those systems how and why each system functions the way it does. The course is available to all majors, not just those relating to agriculture.
Partners for the “Diversity of Agricultural Production Systems” course include Dr. Lee Johnston, Professor of Swine Nutrition and Management, Dr. Yuzhi Li, Associate Professor of Swine Behavior and Welfare and Dr. Brad Heins, Associate Professor of Dairy Science from the WCROC; Dr. Ed Brands, Associate Professor of Environmental Studies and Dr. Margaret Kuchenreuther, Associate Professor of Biology at U of MN Morris; and numerous agricultural producers in the Morris area.
