cows in feild

“Agriculture provides unlimited value, it means everything! Milk doesn’t come from the back of the store, it comes from a cow. There are lots of processes involved to take a product from producer to consumer, and there wouldn't be much food if we didn’t have people employed in agriculture! The hands-on learning at Olds College is awesome! I found the agronomy classes very helpful, especially the focus on crop production.”

Ryan Cameron – Agricultural Management Graduate
