Partnership allows CVTC ag students to get hands-on experience

(WEAU) - Students at Chippewa Valley Technical College are getting hands-on lessons with tractor equipment.

CVTC has partnered up with Tractor Central, which is the John Deere dealer in the Chippewa Valley. Students in farm related classes are getting the opportunity to get experience with top-of-the-line field equipment like tractors, sprayers, planting equipment and combines.

The Dean of Industry, Energy and Ag. Aliesha Crowe says "we provide them with a list of equipment that we need to meet our curriculum, competencies, and they provide us with that equipment for a short term, whether it be in the planting season or the harvesting season and then we return the equipment to tractor central when we're done with it."

Crowe says Tractor Central will also benefit from the program because they may want to hire some of those CVTC students after they graduate, and they will already be familiar with the equipment
