Animal Breeders and Technicians

The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that agricultural workers will have a 2 percent decline in employment and animal breeders will experience a 6 percent decline in employment through 2024. More sophisticated agricultural technology is enabling fewer breeders and technicians to do more work in a more efficient manner, which is reducing employment in the field. Despite this decline, there will continue to be opportunities for animal breeders and technicians because there is high turnover in the field. Additionally, demand for more uniform products and an increasing foreign market may result in a need for more specially trained personnel.
