Farm Managers manage activities related to growing, raising, and harvesting livestock.
These competencies were identified as most important for successful job performance.
Managers in agriculture plan, organize, direct, control and evaluate the operations and functions of farms. They are responsible for growing crops, raising and breeding livestock, poultry and other animals and marketing farm products.
To become a manager doesn’t mean having to own your own farm or business, there are many opportunities to manage on larger operations.
Depending on the operation and the region of Canada, hired managers in agriculture generally earn from $19 to $36 per hour, or $39,500 to $74,800 per year.
