Agriculture: Plants and Animals

Agriculture touches every part of our daily lives. From the food we eat, to the processing and materials that products are made from, people working in the field of agriculture have a big impact on the world around us.

In the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, agriculture encompasses the business, science and skills required to produce the food we eat and the resources we use.

We draw on our rich history of innovative research and community outreach to meet the growing agricultural and food demands of the 21st century!
