What will I learn?

Program Information

Transfer to a four-year institution and/or operate the family farm/ranch. More than 40 agriculture courses in the areas of animal science, agribusiness, farm and ranch management, crops and soils, pre-veterinary medicine and livestock production management allow students to focus on their areas of interest. Butler has a state of-the-art Agriculture facility on the south end of the El Dorado campus complete with modern classrooms, computer lab, activity space, and learning labs. Butler’s Agriculture instructors are nationally recognized.

Farming and ranching are occupations as old as human history. But far from being antiquated, they are industries that have always been progressing. In fact, the techniques and technologies in use on the farm and ranch today are so advanced that effective management requires the kind of intensive training for which Butler has established a respected reputation.

Our Associate’s degree in Farm & Ranch Management gives you the background you need to manage the compete operational range of plant and animal food production. You’ll not only be exposed to the principles of feeding and breeding livestock management, but also financial and range management practices.

Your degree in Farm & Ranch Management can lead to a career in:

  • Bioscience
