The Northwest Experience

When looking to attend a college, Ryan Talkington was searching for a place that would teach him skills to make an impact on the agriculture industry.

At Northwest, he found faculty and staff who cared about student success, classes that challenged him and profession-based experiences he could apply to real-world environments. For Ryan, evaluating livestock, assessing production and determining how all the pieces fit together was critical to understanding the financial decisions made on a working farm. 

Making connections with faculty, staff and fellow students helped him create a network with employers and leaders in the agriculture field ensuring he was career ready, day one.
