Students in the Animal Industry Management sequence generally seek a curriculum balanced between animal science and agricultural business. This program is suggested for students seeking careers in animal production, animal product sales, and agribusinesses with an animal emphasis.
Why Study Agriculture - Animal Industry Management?
The Agriculture major at Illinois State offers a wide array of sequences to prepare students planning on working in any aspect within the agricultural industry. Students who graduate with a degree in Agriculture are not just limited to working on "the farm." They are desirable employees in various industries and career fields. Agricultural Science provides a broad background for working in the agricultural and natural resources industry.
Animal Industry Management majors are exposed to a variety of coursework and lab opportunities. The Hoof N’ Horn Club puts on the largest Jackpot Cattle Show in Illinois each spring, called the Redbird Rumble.
