Ag Business Club members on Spring 2019 Tour

Agribusiness Club Spring Trip to Georgia

In April 2019 the Agribusiness Club traveled to Atlanta and southern Georgia. Edwin Carter (BS 1982, MS 1983) hosted the group at Coca-Cola where they learned about Coca-Cola around the world, logistics and coffee (new product). Dr. Don Shurley, former UK Ag Econ faculty (1980-1990), hosted the group for trips to Dooley Cotton Gin, Calhoun's Market and Premium Peanuts. Lucia Ona (PhD 2007) an Ag Econ faculty member at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College, joined us for lunch at Calhoun's. They also visited the Georgia Museum of Agriculture in Tifton, GA and attended an Atlanta Braves game.


Membership is open to all undergraduate students in the College of Agriculture. While membership recruitment events are held primarily at the beginning of the Fall Semester, new members may join at any time. Associate membership is available to graduate students, teaching personnel, research and Extension faculty and staff within the College. All members are encouraged to participate and are welcome to help the Leadership Team. Membership dues may be paid each semester or at a discounted rate for the year. Meetings will be held each month. Most will be at a local agribusiness.
