AMVC recently visited students at Ivy Tech Community College in Lafayette, Indiana to share the story of pig farming. Alicia Humphrey, AMVC public relations coordinator, is a trained Operation Main Street presenter with the National Pork Board and educated agricultural students in the Introduction to Agriculture course. The presentation’s focus was on modern pig farming and careers in the swine industry. Humphrey also covered topics ranging from animal housing and care to health and nutrition.
Throughout the class period the students viewed videos about a sow farm tour and how pig farms are being sustainable. The group interacted by asking and answering questions throughout Humphrey’s presentation. The class was facilitated through the Zoom platform and each student connected virtually.
“It’s great to local students interested in agriculture and pursuing their degree. The students took advantage of the opportunity to ask questions and learn more about the swine industry and the opportunities available to students,” said Humphrey
AMVC is proud to be an educational resource for area students. Humphrey has spoken to Ivy Tech students for the past four years.
