Separate a droplist value

I have a value that looks like this 2002-2003  when I select it from a drop down list.
when I select it from the ddlist it's value and text look like the above.
Is there a way to "separate" the value above so that I can have a start year of 2002 and an end year of 2003?

Thanks

Excellent-- this worked great, I didn't need the month and day though, just the years.

                       Dim dtBegin As String = str.Substring(0, 4)
                       Dim dtEnd As String = str.Substring(5, 4)

Thanks!
