Course Description
Farming, ranching, and agribusiness remain significant parts of the US economy. In fact, agricultural products raised in the United States find their way into the world’s food supply. While the global marketplace represents a huge economic opportunity for the agribusiness community, it is not without its risks. People the world over are concerned about access to an abundant, safe food supply. Anyone in the food chain can be held responsible when food safety requirements are not met.
