The Next Generation of Ag
Subscribe on iTunes, Stitcher, or wherever you get your podcasts.
This month we are hearing from several students at the UT Institute of Agriculture about their experiences pursuing degrees and future careers in the broad realm of agriculture. Hear about bat research in the jungles of Belize, and how one student is working to make sure our food is safe from pathogens. Whether they are studying equine reproduction in Florida or teaching fishing to 4-H campers, these students are representing UT well as the next generation of ag leaders. Listen now.

Check out some of the "magic moments" shared recently.
