LFCC offers new Agribusiness course

By Kim Walter -- kwalter@nvdaily.com

Starting this fall, Lord Fairfax Community College will offer an Introduction to Agribusiness and Financial Management course.

The course is "designed to assist individuals who are interested in starting their own business, farm or otherwise, and those who would like to become better employers and employees," according to an LFCC release.

Melissa McDonald, a full-time agriculture education instructor and Future Farmers of America adviser at James Wood High School, will teach the class.

The new course will provide students with credits that can be used toward attaining an agriculture degree through a four-year school "such as Virginia Tech," the release states.

Students can also use practical knowledge gained through the course for their own business enterprise.

According to the release, topics covered will include understanding consumer demand, marketing, forecasting and budgeting as planning tools, understanding financial statements, selecting and motivating employees and understanding different business legal structures.

The class can be taken at the Middletown campus on Monday nights from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., but students who would like to have the class distanced to the Fauquier or Luray locations should contact Dr. Morgan Phenix at mphenix@lfcc.edu.
