Horticulture students are also more than welcome to attend. This is a great networking opportunity!
The Agribusiness Management Society would just like to send out a reminder that it is once again time for the biennial California Ag Trip!
The 2016 trip will be Monday, February 8th, through Saturday, February 13th. We will be traveling on a bus down to the Central Valley of California, where we will get an in-depth look of some of the most productive and fertile Agricultural ground in the country!
On this trip, we will be visiting numerous Farms, Ranches, and Agribusinesses. Included among the planned visits will be farms for numerous crops, including Carrots, Almonds, Pistachio’s, Walnuts, Citrus, and Grapes. We are also planning to visit a Hog Farm, a Dairy, and a Fertilizer plant. Throughout the visits, we will meet numerous people who work in the industry, and will have many great opportunities to network!
We will also be attending the Tulare International Ag Show, which is the largest annual agricultural show of its kind, with 1,500 exhibitors displaying cutting-edge agricultural technology and equipment on 2.6 million square feet of show grounds.
This trip is always a hit. Seats are limited, so be sure to sign up soon. It is only $150* to go, and previous attendees say that it is worth every penny!
This is a school excused absence!
For more information, contact a member of the Agribusiness Management Society Presidency.

Our aim for the Department of Horticulture at Brigham Young University-Idaho is to nurture understanding of both the art and science of Horticulture. Students learn experimentally in the classroom, laboratory, greenhouse, and ten acre Thomas E. Ricks demonstration garden as they pursue an Associates or Bachelors Degree. Using the medium of plants, students develop habits of hard work, enlightened minds, and healthy living that assist in gainful employment opportunitues.
