Ridgewater College has the most unique and intriguing internship program that I have profiled to date.  And, even though there is no student housing, the options for students to house in Willmar are different than any I have heard of before as well.  Aside from this, Ridgewater offers excellent opportunities to learn about agriculture, establish your agricultural career or get you started towards your four year agricultural degree.

Chico State University is the agricultural college that I almost went to.  I have told the story on the show before, but in today's interview I finally get to verify!  As it turns out, CSU Chico would have been a fantastic place to study agriculture.  It is in a great part of California, has a great climate and has an outstanding school farm with the opportunity to learn multiple different aspects of livestock, permanent crop and row crop agriculture.  And, it is a very affordable university, especially by California standards.

I have more students from around the country tell me that they are going out of state, to Oklahoma State University, to study agriculture than to any other university.  On today's show I finally get to find out why this is!  OSU has something going on, and it is working.  The lineup of guests we have today do a great job of demonstrating what there is to love in Stillwater, and today will get to profile the Ferguson College Of Agriculture.

Have you ever heard of "Laradise"?  Well, I had not either.  That is how the folks living and going to college in Laramie, Wyoming describe where they live.  This is the location of the only university in the state of Wyoming, The University Of Wyoming.  Being the only university in a geographically large state with a very low population opens up an immensely diverse set of opportunities for students.  Agriculture, wildlife and topography is very diverse throughout the state from Yellowstone National Park on the western edge to Mid-West style farming on the east, and much in between.

The University Of Missouri is a large university offering a robust agricultural program, and it also offers a non-resident tuition waiver to students coming from out of state.  I am always excited when I profile a college that makes this offer for out of state students, and Mizzou is on that list!  On today's interview I am speaking with the Director Of Student Recruitment, Kathleen Matz, as well as student ambassador, Grant Norfleet, who just happens to the newly elected, National FFA Secretary.

Applying for, receiving and working in an Internship was one of the best things I did while I was in college.  And, even though it sounds like everyone does this when you listen to my Ag College Episodes, that is not true.  Many college students allow this opportunity to pass them right by.

On today's episode I really want to encourage students to get involved in internships during the time they are in post-secondary education, whether that be trade school, community college or a four year university.  There are so many reasons that this will benefit you, including:

  • Exposure to industry
  • Determining what career you want
  • Determining what career you do not want
  • Creating a network of industry people
  • Building a resume
  • Learning things and building skills for the future and opportunities that have not even been invented yet

The College Of Western Idaho is a community college located in the Treasure Valley of Idaho, which happens to be where I live and farm. I taught criminal justice courses at CWI for several years, and was able to teach one agriculture class while I was there as well.  CWI first started offering courses in 2009, and first started offering agriculture courses in 2016.  They are a growing agriculture program that is sorely needed in the Treasure Valley of Idaho, and today we will learn about how they are filling that void.

I began my college career at a community college and got off to a great start academically.  I have often stated, with all seriousness, that had I not had that beginning, I probably would not have graduated with a bachelor's degree.  So, I believe that a community college is an absolutely fantastic place to begin a college pursuit, and that is why I wanted to profile as many as possible on this episode.  

In today's episode I am proving Aims Community College from Fort Lupton, Colorado.  We are going to be talking about the re-emergence of their agricultural program, the emergence of new opportunities and why a 38 year old man, who is redefining his life chose Aims for his new beginning.

Mid-State Technical College serves as a conduit between employers in their region of Wisconsin looking for talented and qualified recruits, and up and coming employees who need certifications and more to be qualified to work for those employers.  This pragmatic approach is very beneficial to agriculture students because that is how we in agriculture tend to operate.  And, because Mid-State Tech. has four locations, they can cater to all the different types of agriculture that are represented in each location.

Dordt University is a private, Christian university located in Northwest Iowa.  It is also one of the few Christian universities to have an agriculture program.  The university has its own row crop operation, feed lot and dairy herd.  In addition to that, Dordt is located in a very rural part of the state that is agriculturally intensive.  So, students there have multitudes of opportunities to work in agriculture and make great money doing it!

The College Of The Ozarks is unlike any other college I have profiled to date.  Not only do you work 15 hours per week for your tuition, but you are not allowed to pay for your tuition.  Even better, the university does not allow its students to take out student loans.  If you attend the College Of The Ozarks, your are literally guaranteed to graduate with $0 in student loan debt.

I discovered the College Of The Ozarks through an interview I did with Weston Whiteside (episode #1845 - 9/25/23), who is a 2023 American Star Finalist in the category of agribusiness.  He is a third year student there and told me that he works in exchange for tuition when I interviewed him.  On today's episode I speak with him and his agriculture professor, Tamara Holder, to get all of your questions answered.

Dustin Toberman is the owner of Omni Ag Consulting and a veteran of the commercial ag world and a former VP for Bungee running their northern division.  After 20 years in this aspect of agriculture, Dustin has seen a lot of talented ag students come and go in internships and has done a lot of hiring.  He has also seen what is impressive on a resume and in an interview, and he has seen the unrealistic expectations of newly graduated students.

At the end of Dustin's corporate career, his company was once again merging, and he decided that he did not want to go through another merger.  So, he assessed what he was passionate about and realized that helping pair the right talent with the right opportunity was something that had always got him excited.  This led to the development of Omni Ag Consulting, and within two years he is amazed by the impact he has already been able to make.

On today's episode we are going talk about his path, and we are also going to discuss how students coming out of college and heading into the agricultural career field can best succeed!

The State of South Dakota, like many other states in the middle of the countries is dealing with the issue of shrinking rural communities and less qualified employees for agricultural companies in those areas.  While I am not happy this is the situation for these communities, it does create fantastic opportunities for students who want to work in agriculture and live rurally.

Mitchell Technical College is based in Mitchell, South Dakota and is part of the solution to this problem for the State of South Dakota.  Among the opportunities for agriculture students in South Dakota is learning the skills that lead into an agricultural career through Mitchell Tech. for free and having a guaranteed career position when your two year program is completed.  This is done through a program called Build Dakota, and there are other programs available as well.  Imagine landing your first career position while you are still in high school, having your college 100% paid for and having a job waiting for you when you finished.

Clayton Deuter, the Vice President of Enrollment Services at Mitchell Technical College, joins me on the show today.  We will discuss how this works, what the benefits to students are and how to get this done.  This is a very exciting opportunity for agricultural students from all across the U.S. to help them find their future.

Tuskegee is one of the most historical colleges in the United States, and it just keeps making history.  Located in Central Alabama, this historic campus and agriculture program is central to many activities in Alabama and the surrounding states.  It boasts a rich history of innovation in agriculture and it was teaching students about regenerative agriculture before it was cool.  Tuskegee has a special emphasis on small farms in addition to production agriculture, and might be the exact right fit for you.

The Ohio State University is the largest university that I have profiled to date on this episode.  Today, Dr. Tracy Kitchel joins me to discuss the College Of Food, Ag and Environmental Sciences.  Being an agriculture student at The Ohio State University in Columbus definitely sounds like it has its advantages over the other colleges, almost like a refuge from the mass of over 67,000 students at that campus.  We will also discuss the opportunities at the Wooster Campus and the way that both locations integrate together for an agricultural education.

On today's episode I am joined by Dr. Aslihan Spaulding, a professor of Agribusiness and Food Industry Management as well as Cori Malone, and instructor and academic advisor - both from Illinois State University.  This is my first exposure to this agricultural college, and I have to say that I am impressed.  Illinois State University offers a performance based, non-resident tuition waiver, to students has a large college farm and a small agricultural college housed within a good sized university.  This position agriculture students for unique opportunities and exposure while having class sizes in the single digits!

The University Of Tennessee Martin is one of the universities that inspired this episode.  Hattie and I were made aware of UTM at the National FFA Convention, and after that conversation and hearing how affordable an agricultural education could be there, it got me started thinking about making this episode.  Today, I am speaking with the Agriculture Department Chair, Dr. West Totten.  There is a wealth of information in this interview about another agricultural college that will make it possible for you to create your future in Ag.

Abilene Christian University is in Abilene, Texas, and in my opinion it is in the perfect location for Texas adventure and Texas agriculture.  I have been on campus myself and like the area very much.  ACU has had an agriculture program for some time, but with fluctuations in faculty go fluctuations in programs.  So, today they are highly specialized in animal science but have no agronomy.  ACU is a private, Christ based university, and on today's show Dr. Jim Carpenter joins me to talk all about it.

Angelo State University is located in San Angelo, Texas and sits in the number one goat marketing spot in the number one goat producing state in the entire nation.  Corey Owens, our interview guest today, grew up on a ranch 70 miles west of San Angelo where they raised 1,100 meat goats.  As a goat raiser myself, I could barely get off the topic of Angelo State University being the perfect place for a student who wants to specialize in goat production.  Of course, on Angelo State's 6,000 acre research ranch there is much more to study than just goats.  In today's interview we will learn all about it.
