I see this a lot as well. However I did see a position vacancy announcement last year where the reverse was true. The position -- which was quickly filled -- was at Oregon State University's agricultural research station in Hermiston, OR. The announcement specifically demanded a BA in biology, with an agronomy emphasis and past work experience involving the use and maintenance of farm machinery. My guess was that this was most likely a support position created for someone's relative or cronie.
