Farm Management Technology : This course is the first part of a process by which students analyze the tasks and operations that are related to the workplace functions of the farm manager and establish the relationships with the critical skills and knowledge required for their successful completion. Classroom activities and a one-week internship on a farm other than the home farm give the students the opportunity to examine a and observe the operations that are normally undertaken by farm managers during the winter months. Students identify and report on the conditions under which the operations are executed and determine the performance criteria used for each task associated with the workplace functions. They evaluate the relative importance of each task in the work process.
