Ag students spend all their time sculling cans; all have Ag backgrounds and all drive to college in a tractor – check out these myths (misbelief/idea)!

  1. Ag students spend all their time sculling cans!

-This one could cause a small fry, but we cannot forget the occasional farm walk too!

  1. They all arrive drive to college in a tractor.

-While some do, but others arrive via other modes of transport including a BMW and bus!

  1. All Ag Students have Agricultural backgrounds!

Believe it or not, this is NOT true! – You have many people who do not carry an ounce of farming blood that got bitten by the Ag bug!

  1. All Agricultural students relish the idea of checkered shirts.

While some love a good shirt, others find comfort in the form of a hoodie of trackies!

  1. They all arrive at college wearing overalls and wellies.

NOT ALL! Some wear their mart boots, while others wear their ‘going-out footwear’.

  1. Ag students spend their entire college time in the lecture hall & library.

What about farming? –That practical experience is paramount.

  1. Ag Students don’t learn anything and are just there to pick-up the ‘piece of paper’.

Some are there to seek new inspiration for their farms and to gain a qualification to assist them in the future.
