Agriculture Schools

Agriculture education may require you to help in many areas of farming and the industry, including management and professional careers, as well as farming, fishing, and forestry occupations. The degree or certificate that people are required to pursue depends on the type of career that they desire. Management and professional agriculture careers, such as owner-operators of various establishments, managers of farms and ranches, and related occupations usually may require at least a two-year degree or higher to be considered. Agricultural professionals may work with some level of farming and animal care, including planting, harvesting, livestock care and maintenance, and other tasks. The management level professionals may also be responsible for handling the bookkeeping and financial records of the business, including paying bills and taxes. Most careers in this field may require only hands-on job experience, but the upper level positions like management may take some formal education to achieve. Usually, there are business degree programs designed specifically for these professionals. There aren't many benefits in these careers, and professionals are usually responsible for their own insurance and retirement planning needs.
