Programs
Swine Management

Food production, including that of pork, is increasing along with the world’s population due to the use of scientific technologies and skilled people. If we are to keep pace with the growing population, we will need more of these two vital inputs. The tasks of developing new technologies and new human resources are equally challenging.

The swine management program is designed to prepare people for careers in modern pork production anywhere in the world.  The one-year program judiciously balances “hands-on” training with classroom instruction in the areas of animal care, nutrition, housing maintenance, swine health, reproduction, records management, environmental management and personnel management.  Students also gain practical experience through a summer-long internship on a commercial swine farm in Michigan or beyond. Swine management graduates will have numerous career opportunities including: farm owners/operators, managers or assistant managers (breeding herd, farrowing, nursery, grower-finisher, transportation, feeds, marketing), department supervisors or regional representatives.
