Ag Day

  • Ag Day is an excellent opportunity for prospective students to experience the day-to-day activities that happen in SCC's Agriculture programs! Students will engage in a variety of activities, including livestock ultrasound, plant propagation, a harvest demonstration, and a presentation of Precision Agriculture technology. This is the perfect opportunity to see SCC’s 900-acre farm in action!

    Students will participate in the following stations:

    • Livestock Ultrasound: Witness ultrasound technology as applied to bovine fetal observation.
    • Horticulture: Participate in a hands-on demonstration of how horticulturists reproduce plants in a greenhouse setting. Each person will propagate their own plant to take home!
    • Precision Ag Technology: Explore the latest drone technology used in agriculture and consider its benefits for future generations of farmers and ranchers.
    • Harvest Demonstration: Observe SCC students harvesting the 2018 crop using up-to-date technology.
    • Program Overview: Learn about SCC’s agriculture programs: Agriculture Management & Production, Horticulture & Turfgrass Management, Livestock Management & Production, and Precision Agriculture. Students will share information about their internship experiences and why it is an important part of the SCC Ag experience.
