LBCC is the only community college in the Willamette valley with an Animal Technology program. The program uses the community as a natural instructional laboratory and provides students with knowledge and skills useful for working in production livestock occupations and in entering into livestock-related fields. Some course work may transfer to a four-year institution.
LBCC's Animal Technology courses are designed to provide practical learning experiences through hands-on laboratory sessions. Persons already employed in specific agricultural fields can upgrade or add to their skillset. Students in the program also have an opportunity to participate in competitive collegiate livestock judging.
