About the Agriculture and Rural Operations Industry

When you think about a career in rural operations or agriculture, you probably think about shearing sheep, mustering stock, spraying crops, droving cattle, and fixing fences. But it's not just about being on the farm; the sky's the limit if you work hard. Farmers are food producers, animal carers, business owners, researchers and environmentalists. There are so many exciting career pathways available in this industry for passionate people from agricultural science to business management, advocacy to teaching, and more.
