Swine Management

Think Pig

Swine production continues to play a vital role in the economics of many rural communities throughout the U.S. Entry-level positions with independent producers, small production companies, large corporations, and allied industries pay well and offer unlimited opportunities for advancement. The site and department managers oversee the day-to-day operation of a swine production unit and must have good animal husbandry skills to be successful.

The Swine Management program prepares students for employment as general managers, herdsmen, or managers of the breeding, farrowing, nursery, or finishing units as well as other specialized careers involving management, production, and marketing of swine. In addition to technical agriculture subjects in both crop and livestock production, mechanical skills and farm business management are also included.
