Students Participate in Annual Agricultural Business Field Studies Trip

While some find graduation synonymous with the start of summertime leisure, for students and faculty in the Agricultural Business Management program at SUNY Cobleskill, the day after commencement marks the beginning of the program’s Annual Agricultural Business Field Studies Trip. Providing students with a unique opportunity to personally interact with leaders of some of the most respected agricultural businesses, the Agricultural Business Field Studies Trip is designed to give students a real-life education in a real-world setting.

A one credit summer course, the 2015 Agricultural Field Studies Trip through the American Midwest took the Ag Business group as far west as St. Louis, Missouri, and included stops in New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana and Illinois. Students traveled alongside SUNY Cobleskill faculty members, Dayton Maxwell, Professor of Agricultural Business; Dr. Jason Evans, Associate Professor of Agricultural Business; and Dr. Sophie Winter, Assistant Professor of Agricultural Business, to meet with business owners and managers from Purina, Caterpillar, Anheuser Busch, Cargill, DuPont Pioneer, Fair Oaks Farm and Melvin Price Lock & Dam.

“Since 2009, the Agricultural Business Field Studies Trip has provided our students with an invaluable opportunity to travel to places such as China, Hungary, Ireland and California to experience agriculture as it happens around the world. They truly exemplify SUNY Cobleskill’s commitment to experiential learning in a real-world context,” said Dr. Evans.
