Agriculture, Food & Natural Resources

Educational EquipmentAgriculture can be considered one of the oldest industries in th world tracing its origin back 12,000 years. What started with small groups of people in various locations figuring out how to domesticate animals and grow their food has become a multi-trillion-dollar global industry.

Over the last few centuries, sparked by a series of industrial revolutions, significant changes have taken place throughout the industry that has shaped agriculture as we know it today. Machinery has replaced manual processes and hand tools. Additionally, technological advances, including computers and the Internet, have enabled agricultural machines and procedures to be more productive and efficient.

As technology continues to advance, agriculture must keep evolving to ensure that productivity keeps pace with an ever-expanding world population. Today’s agricultural experts need experience with more types of technology than ever before.

Agricultural mechanics is a critical component of robust and relevant agriscience programs. With the right equipment, educators can demonstrate how to construct and repair equipment, buildings, and facilities by following architectural and mechanical plans, show mechanical equipment and power systems, and teach hydraulic and pneumatic systems service and repair.

Plants, farms, and animals are the main functions of agriculture. Still, there are additional opportunities in this field. This career pathway covers a variety of careers - ranging from animal science and veterinary science to metal technologies/welding, oil and gas production systems, and energy & natural resources.

Students need the opportunity to apply physical science principles to their studies with an agricultural mechanics career track that covers:

  • Agricultural systems including equipment, power systems, alternative fuel sources and precision technology
  • Welding trainers, CNC tables, and hydraulics training systems are all key components to the formula that makes up a robust educational program
  • Food Production & Processing Systems
  • Natural and Rewable Resource Systems
  • Animal Systems, Veterinary Programs
