My entire life I have been on the farm with my dad and grandpa. When I was too little to drive the tractors I would sit and just ride around with them. Now that I am old enough to drive them, I have a lot of experience, and as a farmer working with your family and friends you hire you can take some days off if needed without getting in trouble.
In 1937 under the Department of Agriculture created a program to help with rural rehabilitation, farm loans, and subsistence homestead programs which was called the Farm Security Administration (FSA). Farm Security Administration program was created by President Franklin Roosevelt during the Great Depression in hopes of bringing the country out of it using innovative programs. FSA was created to give aid to the poor farmers during the Great Depression and help them become self-sustained. The Information Division of the Resettlement Administration of FSA had a program that documents the rural conditions through photographs. The photos helped show culture, landscapes and the people of rural America and it also helped promote FSA.
After my college graduation I would like to pursue my dream job of becoming an Agricultural Loan Officer at a bank or another company. I would really enjoy working with different people and farmers and discussing their financial requests. I plan to use my Agricultural Business Management degree to help manage my farm and rely on my knowledge to make the best informed decisions about my business and my customers. By majoring in Agriculture Business Management I plan to help encourage more farmers to start their own farms or even expand their farming operation. I would assist them in making financial decisions based on their credit, character, capital, capacity, conditions, and collateral. I would make the best informed decisions about my clients that would benefit us both in the long run. I believe that by getting to know your clients and researching them thoroughly that we can support those farmers in need of loans and find the very best clients that have excellent character and credit. I hope to not only work as an Agricultural Loan Officer but also be a part time beef and crop farmer on the side. I plan to use my Agricultural Business Management degree to help manage my farm and rely on my knowledge to make the best informed decisions about my business and my
The career I would like to pursue would be farming. Farming is not an easy thing to do there are multiple risks you must take. To be a good farmer you must have knowledge of advanced technology and keep up to date with the latest and greatest technology in order to progress and must also have business skills as well as hands on experience on a farm. Farmers salary will never be the same year to year, the market will determine when and how much you get for your product, if there is a surplus of corn form the previous year then the market price will be very low, making your income also low. The median annual income of most farmers and ranchers was about $61,000 in 2010, according to the U.S. bureau of Labor Statistics. The top ten percent of

You are getting hands on experience working with farmers and helping with conservation practices. When you go on a farm and take soil samples for a farmer or check out a waste management units or cross fencing, you are getting to see how a farmer is trying to keep waste area to a minimum or increase the ton per acre for forage, even how they are trying to increase the amount of nutrients for their amount.
Over the years agriculture has nearly diminished from the workforce. Why is this happening? In fact, ever since the Industrial Revolution’s promises of “big city success” agriculture has taken a hit. Agriculture has been a foundation for the infrastructure of the United States since it’s creation. Agricultural careers are a necessity for the nation. It is important through the history, from whom it affects, the effects on the environment and people, and to find a solution to the loss of this core element.
There are a lot of things to consider before making a career changes, especially one as big as uprooting yourself from the business world in a major city to moving to rural farmland, learning a new trade from the bottom up. It is crucial to research your options before making any decisions. The advice from your colleagues in the text does bring up some really good points. If the article in The Wall Street Journal holds to be true, now would be an excellent time to get into the farming business producing corn crops if there is going to be an increased demand for corn to produce corn-based ethanol as a gasoline substitute. If there will be an increase in the demand for corn, the
In the past my family and I have had some experience with farm working. My parents have taken me to work with them in apple, cherry and onion picking during the summer when I am off of school. My father works a seasonal job in an onion factory stacking up sacks of onions into trucks. Some experiences that I have learned from my parents and I working in a farm work
Having a piece of land that you work everyday which creates a crop that sells for a roughly set amount of money doesn’t appeal to me. Farming to me seems really risky. You have a lot of overhead and need to worry about the quality of the land and machinary. Moving toward the manufacturing is less stressful in a lot of way. You go to work and do one job with the guarantee at the end of the day you’ll end up with some money. If you lose your manufacturing job for some reason there are others which you can jump in to. I would agree with Tocqueville that a manufacturing job can be boring doing the same job day to day but the security of a paycheck without the gamble of a good crop appeals to me

Growing and harvesting crops requires many tasks. Before the crop is planted, preparing the soil with disking, tilling (vertical or horizontal), and fertilizing is sometimes required depending on the conservation method used. Shorty after, it is time for the planting or drilling of the crop. During the middle of the growing season, irrigating is in full swing to make the crops grow. Also, floaters and airplanes are fighting the battle with weeds and pests. This time of the year is also slower for farmers then planting or harvesting time. As fall arrives, irrigating comes to a halt and the busy harvesting season begins. Combines, tractors and grain carts, and semi trucks fill the countryside as the race to get the crops out of the field begins. If the weather permits harvest can last as short as a couple of weeks for the smaller farms and longer then a month or two for the larger farms. During late fall and into the winter selling grain and buying seed, equipment, and fertilizer is the task at large. As you can see farmers does not get very much free time. Most of the time this occupation requires long hours, from sun up to sun set. This limits time for trips and extra curricular activities.
