Imagine your typical career day. Students sit in a classroom all day as a parade of professionals in uniforms and suits stream through the room.

Sounds riveting, doesn’t it?

The incredible and interesting part of working in modern agriculture, or any field for that matter, is less about the “career” and more about the daily problem-solving involved in that career.
