Classes in agriculture are arranged to meet the needs of students who wish to complete their formal college work at Casper College or for persons who plan to obtain a bachelor’s degree elsewhere. Every effort is made to assist students in selecting a program which will fit their needs. Modern agriculture is a business and a science as well as a way of life, and the faculty recognizes that it is as important to produce alert and well-informed citizens as it is to train competent farmers and ranchers.

This two-year course of study is designed to provide the training and skills necessary to enter some phase of livestock production either as an employee or as a farmer or rancher.

Students following this curriculum will qualify for the associate of science degree; however, courses in either business or farm mechanics may be substituted for some of the courses shown, and the program can be tailored to the student’s needs.
