What are some careers that go into these “groups”?

Thank you!

  2. All the farm careers are taught at the AG university in your state. When you are there are the pre-requisite courses for them all to get you startedl. You can chose what you like or where the jobs are opening up.

  4. Are you asking because of eventual interest in college?

    There are lots of bioscience programs which lend themselves to your interest…

    In addition to a general biology degree, if you’re interested in animals, you could study:

    Zoology, farrier science, or enroll in a vet program.

    If you’re interested in farming and agriculture, you could study:

    Horticulture, agriculture, etc. Many colleges have working farms and now even offer specialty programs such as sustainable agriculture or organic agriculture. Other scientific disciplines, such as chemistry lends itself to this area too.

    Careers that lend themselves to what you write could range from forest ranger, to vet, to farmer, to vineyard manager, to even teaching. But it’s really hard to answer since you asked such a broad question without much background.

    Since I’m not sure what you’re looking for exactly, keep this in mind… you have to ask yourself, what are your goals in life? What are your interests? Write the answers down and revisit your writings over time — you don’t have to answer those questions overnight.

    Next, seek out the people who can genuinely point you in the right direction. Be leery of some of the advice, hearsay, and just plain crap answers you’ll see in these forums. If you’re in HS still, is there a counselor you can trust — one that genuinely cares about their students? If so, ask him/her. What about clubs? Is there a 4H club nearby? Do they offer anything that helps you figure out what you want to do with the rest of your life? How about at the county extension? etc. If you’re in college, talk to department heads and your adviser.

  5. Ag teacher, vet, farmer, rancher, show animal raiser (you can make lots of money by selling show animals, i buy them quite often), feed store owner, things like that. getting in an agriculture class would help you make the decision. i am in ag right now and it is my life……im not kidding
