It was very fun and educational. Helped that I had great teachers.
Thanks to them I have a great job.
I liked how it opened my eyes to new things
That it was based on what the class wanted to learn as a whole. That
we also touched a little on everything.
I like the internship aspect. You gain a lot of knowledge working with
others than sitting in the classroom.
good instructors and class offerings
I liked that we took alot of trips and got to alot of hands on things.
I really enjoyed every aspect of this program from the animal classes
to the soils and weed classes. It was a lot of fun and my fellow
classmates were always fun and helpful. We were like one big family
and it was very fun. I will miss all these people who I have developed
a relationship with.
I enjoyed the one on one interaction with my instructors, as well as the
education and variety of courses offered.
I liked that we not only spent time in the classroom but we also went
out to farms and did alot of hands on stuff. It was a good experience
and I enjoyed the small cass feeling. Are class we very close.
I liked that a lot of the program was hands on.

Things being more organized.
I would have changed the knowledge of the some of the instructors. I
don't feel that the animal science teacher has a strong knowledge
base of dairy- in the dairy state. I think this is something that needs to
be improved. I also feel that I was shorted when our crop/soil
instructor was gone- the teacher was very bias and not extremely
knowledgable.
I would have more responable teacher Tracy that would work more on
focusing on the knowledge that the students need and help students.
Something I would change about this program is the organization of
some things. Most things were organized but some where not.
NOTHING
I would nnot like to have three hour classes that was not fun at all! i do
not like to sit for more than two hours in a row. MORE FIELD
TRIPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I would like to have classes that are 2 hours or less. 3 hour classes
are long and too much work time when learing could be done
I would of liked to learn more on feeding programs and more about
GPS during crop studies because of the great use of it now.
Keep our Fridays off. That was nice.

yes most definatley
yes, tracy did a wonderful job
Love animals.
Had many classes that taught this well
I wish that animal nutrition 2 went more in depth. The majority of the
class never had their work done and kept us doing the same thing for
weeks. We never moved forward- which inhibited my ability to learn.
Its not my fault people can't get their work done.
Yes, the class was hard but I learned alot.
yes much better than before
Compliments of Tracy Harper

Create an effective plan for nutrient
management and crop production

Feedback

Western Wisconsin Technical College

Learned the basics but now that I am out on the internship I have
learned more and how to manage.
Not going into crop production
In crop science we learn about nutrients of crops but i didn't take
nutrient management
yes I liked making a snap plus plan
Love plants and work at a COOP!
Yes, both in the field and at school.
Our crop class was shorted, and I feel at a disadvantage because of
the substitue instructor. He was very bias- there should have been a
better selection process to choose a replacement
Crop production yes but nutrient management no. We should have
looked at more commodities in person. Bring some in
