The 100-acre Three Rivers Farm houses our TRC Rodeo team, which won a national championship in bull riding in 2022. The Farm is equipped with a 42-stall barn, outdoor lighted arena, state-of-the-art livestock working facility, rotational grazing system, and much more! The Sikeston location includes a row crop lab. Both facilities offer hands-on learning opportunities so students can practice the skills that are needed to excel in the agriculture industry.
