This is a one-year, intensified program designed to allow students the opportunity to specialize in the area of swine management. It provides students with a greater knowledge of swine enterprise management through experiential learning, clerkship programs and an internship.
The MSU Swine Farm is a modern, bio-secure facility built in 1997. Located on the southern edge of campus, the Swine Farm consists of one continuous structure which houses high-health, farrow-to-finish production. The Swine Farm is used by faculty and staff who are conducting research, teaching and extension/outreach programs.
The swine clerkship at the MSU Swine Teaching and Research Center is designed to provide students with a thorough hands-on experience in modern, swine production. Students will work with members of the farm staff to accomplish day-to-day, standard procedures.
