People who like to study and care for animals may opt for careers in animal science or the related fields of veterinary science or farm management. To have a career in animal science, a bachelor’s degree is usually required. These programs focus on sustainable systems, their management, physiology, animal welfare, nutrition, and genetics.

The number of farm manager jobs is predicted to grow slowly through 2014.
