Turn your love of animals
into a rewarding career
Livestock Managers plan, direct, or coordinate the management or operation of farms or ranches. They hire, train, or supervise farm workers or contract for services to carry out the day-to-day activities of the managed operation, and may also engage in breeding, financial, or marketing activities.
Considerable career preparation is need for this career, but if you are enterprising, conventional, realistic and love working sustainability with livestock animals every day, this may be a worthwhile career choice for you.
