Slater Farms

A Microsoft Office Agribusiness Simulation

Students learn what it's like to own, operate, and manage an agribusiness.

Description

Slater Farms is a first-of-its-kind computer simulation that teaches students what it's like to own, operate, and manage an agribusiness. In the simulation, students assume the role of a Microsoft Office Specialist to produce a variety of documents for Slater Farms, a fruit and vegetable farm located in Tifton, Georgia.

From managing agricultural crops to writing the company's newsletter, students gain exposure to real world agribusiness operational tasks. The main focus in this simulation is to expose students to the necessary work involved in running an agricultural business using the channels of distribution and marketing tools typical in the agricultural industry.

Features
  • Use with any version of MS Word, Excel, Access, PowerPoint, and any Desktop Publishing software.
  • Hi-resolution "Slater Farms" logo provided to add a professional touch to the simulation.
