Partnership highlights college’s expertise in Agriculture.

Anchored by over 70 years of education and partnerships with industry, FVTC’s Agriculture programs are second-to-none. A new phase of the program's legacy is Life on the Farm, a weekly television segment produced in partnership with CBS affiliate WFRV.

FVTC Ag Instructor Jeremy Hanson highlights a variety of farms and related organizations as part of the station’s Midwest Farm Weekly. The partnership began in August of 2019 as a way to continue the award-winning agriculture coverage that retired journalist Mike Austin started on WFRV more than 35 years ago.

“Fox Valley Tech has built a living library of Ag experts to help students, and now viewers, truly experience life on the farm,” says Millaine Wells, Midwest Farm Weekly host and WFRV Local Five Live co-anchor. “Jeremy understands the importance of preserving generations and traditions for one of Wisconsin’s vital industries.”
