Mayville State University is launching a new agribusiness program. “We have a couple classes that we will offer in the spring of 2021 and we’ll go full throttle ahead in the fall quarter,” said Ted Stoa, who is coordinating the new degree program. “We feel there is a niche out there for what we’re going to offer.” Murray State University agriculture dean Tony Brannon is serving as a consultant to Mayville State on this new agribusiness degree. “We’re trying to meet the needs of this local area and the needs of the agricultural industry, to provide people an education that can go into these many jobs,” said Brannon. Mayville State officials met with farmers and representatives of the agribusiness world Tuesday to discuss the opportunities with this new degree program.
