Crops and Livestock

While farming is admirable as a way of life, it is also a business. Therefore, our research-based programs promote:

  • effective production practices;
  • competitive pricing;
  • business management skills;
  • environmentally sound production practices;
  • alternative agriculture businesses;
  • youth education about food and fiber sources;
  • successful living on a few acres.
