Simulator to help NWTC agriculture students

Northeast Wisconsin Technical College agriculture students from Door and Kewaunee counties will soon get hands-on experience with heavy machinery without going to a farm.  NWTC received a nearly $25,000 grant from the National Institute of Food and Agriculture.  That will add a Tenstar simulator on the Green Bay campus which replicates tractors, combines and other machinery in a lab setting.  Dr. Amy Kox, Dean of Trades and Engineering, says such a simulator would benefit farms and orchards around Door and Kewaunee counties.




Such virtual training is needed to help fill 4,500 anticipated openings for skilled agriculture employees in Wisconsin between now and 2026.
