Dairy Farm Management Technology

Students in the Dairy Farm Management Technology program develop the skills and knowledge they need to operate a profitable modern dairy farm or a successful career in the agribusiness industry. The program is unique in that it integrates classroom instruction with hands-on experience at the college farm as well as local dairy businesses. The program also benefits from working closely with industry representatives to expose students to new technologies as they become available in the marketplace.

The program features the college's 500-acre working farm and registered Holstein and Brown Swiss herd of 98 cows and a full complement of replacements. The modern dairy operation has a double-four herringbone milking parlor. The farm is continually looking at new ways to improve profitability and many of these improvements are completed through student design and input. The farm also serves as an employment option for many students.

Students from the state of Vermont may apply for admission to the Farm and Agricultural Resource Management Stewards (F.A.R.M.S.) program offered in cooperation with the University of Vermontís F.A.R.M.S. program This program offers a seamless transition from dairy farm management at Vermont Tech to a second two years at the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at UVM. Full-tuition scholarships are available to Vermont students in F.A.R.M.S.
