If you are a high school student, you should be taking all of the science courses that you can take and if you have any agriculture science courses taught at your school you should take as many of them as you can take as well. If you can find a summer job working on a farm or something related to agriculture it will help you determine the specific area in Ag. you are interested in and help you get a feel for the environment and hours required in the career field.

Evaluate your interest in farming for the long term. If the interest is there, develop your goals, identify a location and size for both crop acres and livestock numbers, develop a plan for your farming business, gather input from ag professionals, contact a lender for borrowing funds, identify personal spending needs the business must support, and ensure that you have a source for off farm income.
