Farm Progress America, March 31, 2022

Max Armstrong reports on an issue facing agriculture – a shortage of specialists from veterinarians to engineers.

Max Armstrong shares insight from his recent conversation with Emily Dahlke, Wisconsin state FFA treasurer, whose career choice got his attention. Max spoke to her on the most recent episode of This Week in Agribusiness. She is majoring in animal science pre-vet at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls. She wants to be a large animal veterinarian, which Max points out is an area with great need. And Max shares another area where there's a shortage – engineers.
