(Note: Adrienne Bradley, who appears in this clip, was a National Collegiate Agriculture Ambassador in 2012!)
A related article in The Atlantic Monthly lists “Veterinarians” and “Animal Breeders” among their 13 jobs with the lowest unemployment rates in 2011 and 2012.
As always, it’s a great time to be an ag student!
