Agriculture Surveys

“Summer LEADs Camp was a great experience! They covered a wide range of interests in the Ag department. From people that are interested in the animal sector all the way to people that want to fly drones for agricultural purposes. I feel that this is a great opportunity for people that want to work in  agriculture but are not quite sure what sector they want to work in yet.”
