Any student that likes to work with their hands,
wants to be involved in agriculture,
and wants to help people,
this is a good program.
About 25-30% is theory
and 70-75% will be hands-on-lab activities.

The whole mechanical aspect of it
really interested me.
Well, we worked on engines,
hydraulics, not just tractors.
We worked on planters, combines, hay balers.
I think it was probably one of the best

We’re a good leap to get them started.
Job opportunities are there.
They’re there in a lot of different areas.

after high school
and now I got a line
of kind of what I want to follow.
