Imagine a classroom, spanning 550 acres with our own cattle herd, where you learn by doing. That's what awaits Agricultural education and animal science majors at NCTA. You'll learn the fundamentals of livestock production, animal health, crop production, the equine industry, and natural resources management. Combine that knowledge with business management and marketing courses, and you'll be prepared for a variety of careers related to livestock and agricultural education.

MEET THE FACULTY

Doug Smith, PhD

"Being raised on a farm/ ranch set the path of my career, I knew I would not be able to return home to the family operation so I looked at other opportunities and my passion so education of others about the livestock industry is where I positioned myself for a career. I enjoy teaching and coaching others in selecting the right kind of livestock as well as how to make the production system work. I love to discuss with others about where their food comes from and how we manage it."
