Iowa has a rich agricultural history. We literally feed the world.
The agriculture industry has gone through some major transformations over the past 50 years. These advances have expanded the scale, speed, and productivity of the agriculture industry. Efficiency has become essential in order to produce the highest quality crop each year and produce the healthiest livestock, while also being thoughtful stewards of the land.
One of the biggest changes in the industry over the years is the variety of careers associated with agriculture. In the past, if you wanted to work in agriculture, you were a farmer. Many people grew up on the family farm and took over as their parents retired.
Today, there is a vast multitude of jobs associated with agriculture. It no longer matters where you grew up or what experience you have tending to a farm.
If this sounds intriguing to you, an Agriculture degree or diploma from NIACC will help you move toward transfer or employment in agricultural marketing and finance, agricultural operations management, agricultural sales and services, agriculture technology, agriculture education, agronomy, or animal science.
