FVTC dedicates expanded agriculture building

October 2, 2013

From wbay.com: “FVTC dedicates expanded agriculture building” — Fox Valley Technical College dedicated an expanded agriculture facility Tuesday.

Officials say the Service Motor Company Agriculture Center has been upgraded with state-of-the-art equipment and offers the state’s only precision agriculture program that teaches how to use GPS technology to optimize farm production.

The expanded facility was funded in part by a public referendum passed last year.

“Agriculture is really the legacy industry in the state of Wisconsin. It’s been around forever. And we intend to be a part of maintaining and growing that, quite frankly, for the future,” Mike Cattelino, Associate Dean of Manufacturing and Agriculture Technologies, said.

Officials at Fox Valley Tech say enrollment is skyrocketing. It’s up 87 percent from 2009 to 2012.
