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.
