In just a matter of 12 credits, students at Utah State University now have the opportunity to earn a minor in Drones. This minor is fairly new to the campus and was created through the work of Andreas “Baron” Wesemann, director of the professional pilot program, and Daniel “Wookie” Robinson, drone class instructor.

The difference is that it contains high amounts of protein, it’s easily digested by livestock and wild animals and it has fire retardant abilities.
