farm & Ranch Management Option

Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics


A Farm and Ranch management program option targets careers in production agriculture in an agricultural business. This curriculum is for students intending to become farm and/or ranch operators or professional managers of farms, ranches or feedlots. It is also well suited for students interested in the field of agricultural finance. Many of our farm and ranch graduates have found careers in sales and finances.

This curriculum is for students intending to work as operators or professional managers of farm or ranches, or in fields that work directly with farms and ranches. These can include banks, government agencies, agricultural service companies, and others. The option is well suited for students interested in the field of agricultural finance.
   In this option, courses in farm and ranch management, finance, and marketing are supplemented by courses in the science of agriculture and natural resources: Soils, crops, range management, veterinary sciences and animal science, with electives in other areas.

Course Information

Departmental Checklist

   The departmental checklists allow students to monitor and identify their progress in completing the degree, both for the University requirements for a Bachelors of Science degree and Departmental requirements. The Checklist is divided into two columns, the University Studies Column that outlines what every student on campus must complete, and the Agribusiness column. To get a degree here both areas must be satisfied. Click here for a more complete description of University Studies Program
   The appropriate checklist will vary depending upon when a student enters the University of Wyoming or a Wyoming Community College. The checklist represents a commitment that we make to the student based upon when they enroll. While it is natural to have changes and modifications as we find better ways to design programs the student is only committed to the checklist that they enter the program under. The student may voluntarily progress to a new program and associated checklist if the new list is more interesting or fits program better. Otherwise we work with students on the version that best fits their time of entrance.
