             FUNCTIONS OF THE COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE
  The College of Agriculture performs three distinct functions for the citizens
of Wis-
consin. (1) it provides, with the cooperation of the other schools and colleges
of the
University, suitable collegiate instruction in agriculture and its related
fields; (2) it
conducts, through the organization of its Experiment Station, research in
the natural
and social sciences as they relate to agriculture and homemaking; and (3)
it dissemi-
nates to the farmers and homemakers of the State, through its Agricultural
Extension
organization, information on the latest research findings as pertains to
their respective
vocations. The content of this bulletin deals exclusively with the instructional
function
of the College of Agriculture .
                    OPPORTUNITIES IN AGRICULTURE
    Young men, particularly those with a farm background or those who have
lived in
rural communities and understand rural problems, will find many opportunities
in
the broad field of agriculture. These opportunities fall into four general
classifications,
namely: (1) farming; (2) agricultural teaching and extension work; (3) agricultural
commerce and industry; and (4) agricultural research.
  FARMING-There is opportunity for success in farming. The college graduate
is
trained in the application of modern up-to-date methods which today are indispensible
to profitable farming. He has had an opportunity to broaden greatly his perspective
and to increase his capacity to deal effectively with farm problems.
  TEACHING AND EXTENSION WORK-A large, closely-knit, organization of the
Smith-
Hughes vocational agriculture teachers, county agricultural agents and other
exten-
sion workers is effectively disseminating among the farm youth and farmers
of the
various states, information on up-to-date agricultural methods and practices
made
available by the agricultural experiment stations. Only men with adequate
farm back-
ground and training in an agricultural college can expect to be placed in
agricultural
teaching or extension work.
