Agribusiness B.S.

As the demands placed on the world's food supply continue to build, so does the importance of managing the farms and supply lines that help meet those demands. Dairy or meat, crop or herd, barn or warehouse—MTSU's farm labs, fully operational dairy facility, and multiple agri-industry partnerships provide a hands-on, experiential learning environment that is hard to beat.
