Agricultural jobs are found in many agricultural communities in the United States. The agricultural industry seems to catch up with other industries that are fast growing today. Agriculture is a broad field and if you do not realize there are many industries that are complimentary to the agricultural industry including food service, manufacturing, retail, and wholesale, food processing, dairy, liquor, and tourism. To make it simple, this article will briefly highlight some of the work in agriculture you can find in these various categories: farm workers, farmers and ranchers, fishing, agricultural executives, and managers. It all depends on which city you live in where agriculture is a major industry and the majority of the products being imported, processed, and consumed. Let us see what those jobs are.

Those that have jobs in agriculture in management have their own farms and ranches. They are mostly self employed and perform the responsibilities themselves including managing the ranch or farm. They hire workers to do the cultivating, harvesting, planting, and sell the produce. Ranch managers also do the same to train workers, raise animals, and oversee the various ranch responsibilities. They sometimes hire supervisors to monitor the workers, and asses the work of the employees. Farm and ranch managers also must keep records including the procurement of supplies, feed, fertilizers, and payroll. Accounting and auditing is also crucial to the business so they may hire or do the balance sheet themselves. Other similar tasks are assigned to the workers including records of vaccination for the animals, purchases, operational expenses, paying taxes, among others. The farmers and ranchers may need to hire a few contractors including taking care of the legal requirements, tax records, and technicians to install electricity, plumbing, and machine repairers. Large commercial farms and ranches run by a corporation and employ numerous workers. Farm managers must possess skills in crop rotation to maximize yield.

Foresters on the other hand are another example of agricultural careers. They are responsible for managing the forests for a lot of purposes including recreation, conservation, and economic development. They keep an accurate record using the GPS for the inventory of the trees or timber, procurement of these timbers determine the timbers’ value and collaboration with other foresters. Foresters are scientists that are employed by the government and private companies to help find solutions to the preservation of the forests, water sheds, wildlife, and also determine the time best for cutting the trees. They also find new ways on how to grow and plant trees.



Fish farming and fishing is another example of work in agriculture where they do a lot of tasks every day. Everyday commodities reach the market in good condition. They are classified in weight, size, worth, and condition including crabs, fish, and other sea food. Those are the responsibilities of the graders and sorters. Laborers, planters, nursery, and farm workers are responsible for planting, harvesting, maintaining, and using fertilizers to help the crops grow. The nursery workers usually work in the green house where they plant new herbs and shrubs, maintain, cut, water, and apply fertilizer and herbicides. They also harvest flowers and other produce to sell in the market or fill orders from a local grocery store, restaurant, hotel, and markets.

Agricultural careers such as ranch workers are employed to take care of the animals including goat, cattle, pigs, poultry, sheep, and also bees. Their responsibilities include feeding, raising, catching, and provide water to the animal. If these animals are raised for their eggs, honey, fur or wool, they do the harvesting, shaving, and skinning. The workers also must keep a record of the products including daily yield, detecting sick animals, vaccinating, tending to the injured, and giving medications to the animals as necessary.

Some work in agriculture that trains the workers on the job especially ranching, harvesting, tending, and much more. These jobs usually require a high school diploma or sometime it is not needed even in large corporate owned farms and ranches. The managerial and supervisory may need a bachelor’s degree in management and business administration. Some ranches and farms hire highly experienced managers even if they have no college education. Technology and automations are believed to be a threat to manual jobs in agriculture, but statistics suggest that these jobs did not decline.
