I love to tell people I'm an AG major because it's something I'm very proud of. But sometimes, I cant decide if I want to laugh or roll my eyes at the questions I get. Here are just a handful of questions I get as a student studying agriculture.
"Wait what's your major?"
Agriculture Communications with a minor is Agribusiness and Livestock Science, need me to repeat it again?
"What does that mean?"
A communications degree. Focused in agriculture.
"You can study that?"
Nah I'm just kidding, gotcha good didn't I?
"So did you grow up on a farm?"
Some AG majors did, some didn't, whether you did or didn't really doesn't make a difference.
"What exactly are you planning on doing with that?"
Oh you know, just working and making a career like everyone else.
"There are jobs for that?"
Yes, yes there are. Agriculture is actually the nation's largest employer, I promise there's jobs and they don't all involve working on a farm.
"Whats your stance on GMO's?"
They're a vital part to feeding our growing population , please don't try to tell me all of the bad things Facebook has told you about them.
"Do you wanna have a farm one day?"
I actually do but I know plenty of AG majors who don't .
