Animal Science - Dairy A.A.S.
Employment opportunities for program graduates are numerous. Many of the recent graduates have gone into dairy production, and the others have found employment in sales and services industries related to dairy cattle nutrition, animal health, and dairy construction and equipment. Other popular areas include financial management, artificial insemination, agricultural journalism, and agriculture education. Students who choose to continue their education may transfer into the Dairy Management B.Tech. program at Morrisville State College or transfer to other four-year universities.
Research opportunities for transfer students in dairy management and related fields (nutrition, reproduction, milking management, genetics, physiology, and others) are numerous and can lead to rewarding careers. Because so many employment opportunities exist, the need for highly qualified students continues to increase. Just as the dairy industry is growing and changing, so is the knowledge needed by dairy producers to remain profitable. Both dairy managers and those who provide support services must have the training and information needed to deal with the challenges of the future.
