 Program -Reed Hutchcraft introduced Dr. Ryan Anderson, from SVCC.   Dr. Anderson spoke about the Ag curriculum at the college and the many advances made within the past 18 months.  They have added Transfer Degrees, split the curriculum into Animal Science and Agronomy/Ag Business.  They have added Ag certificate programs and partner with businesses on externships which allow students to work and earn salary/benefits while attending school. He spoke of adding chickens to the program and hope to add goats as well.   Sauk will host 8,  4 day long Ag Mechanic workshops for Ag teachers soon.  It was interesting and exciting to hear about all of the advances in the Ag curriculum at SVCC.  Dr. Anderson's presentation was informative as well as entertaining.
