Early career agribusiness professional development training series available
Michigan State University
When new agribusiness employees begin to visit farms as part of their work duties, farmers indicate they prefer interacting with agribusiness professionals who have some practical on-farm knowledge. As the current agribusiness workforce ages and many retire, our land grant universities have fewer graduates with practical hands-on farm experience to fill those positions. Michigan State University Extension’s series, “Bridging the Experience Gap”, provides early career agribusiness professionals with hands-on training and experience in many different aspects of agriculture.
