About the Livestock and Poultry Management Degree

Approximately sixty-three percent of North Carolina’s Farm Cash Receipts come from Livestock and Poultry production.  With the current projections of the world population to exceed 9 Billion by 2050, it becomes more important to prepare students to meet the expected increases in the demand for affordable protein.  The Livestock and Poultry Management (LPM) Associates of Applied Science (AAS) is designed for students with an interest in working with various livestock (dairy, beef, and swine) and poultry (broiler, turkey, and commercial egg) species post-graduation.  This degree prepares graduates for entry level management positions in live production, technical consultation or with allied industries.  The curriculum includes: technical courses such as beef, swine, and poultry management courses; Ag Business courses; and General Education Program (GEP) courses which include Math, English, Humanities, and Social Sciences.
