Program Overview

Go straight to the heart of one of Alberta’s biggest industries – beef.  

You’ll start learning on the farm from day one. That’s Lakeland’s Student-Managed Farm – powered by New Holland.

You’ll study commercial and purebred cow/calf operations as well as feedlots.  And, you’ll start at calving and go through the complete production cycle. Your courses range from livestock genetics to meat science.

Hands-on and student-led experiences are the bedrock of this program. You’ll go beyond the classroom and into the real world from pasture to plate.

Those opportunities are centered in our student-managed farm (SMF) model. Or, if you choose student-directed practicum.  

For example:

  • hone your business management and marketing skills using real-time data to make decisions
  • build leadership and organization skills by planning and running sales and events such as The Roundup
  • experience summer and winter calving management options

You’ll be ready to start your career in any industry sector, or on your own farm or ranch.
