K-State Research and Extension

K-State students excel on multiple levels

Students in the College of Agriculture are preparing to be the next generation of agricultural leaders through engagement in the classroom, hands-on learning and student leadership. Our highly ranked programs go hand-in-hand with excellent advising — on average each advisor works with about 25 students.

Our students succeed:

  • Crops judging team won seven consecutive national titles, the collegiate crops championship in 14 of 17 years, and two consecutive international championships. 
  • Forage judging team competed in its second national contest and won both years. 
  • Meat animal evaluation team won the national championship, and the livestock judging team earned the reserve national title.
  • Food science product development team was first among all U.S. teams at the 2016 Research Chefs Association Student Culinology competition.
