Study Farming Management Online Course and Learn How to Work Your Own Farm

Have you always wanted to work your own farm, or have the land, but not the skills? This unique course in Farming and Management will provide you with the skills needed to achieve these tasks.

Due to a number of key factors, such as cost and suitable knowledge, the people who are most likely to become farmers are those people who have been raised on or have lived on a farm. But this is not always the case, and recently there have been increasing numbers of people who are leaving urban lifestyles for a farming life.

Hobby farmers often start with a small allotment, while maintaining their mainstream work or income until they are comfortable about making a living from their "hobby". Some progress to larger properties once they have established the skills, knowledge, and financial backing to enable them to farm profitably on a larger scale.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Understand the different types of farming
  • Identify factors to be considered when establishing a farm
  • Understand the concept of soil management
  • Understand how to use additives to enhance soil

Many countries have traditionally relied heavily on their agricultural economies. Increased technical and infrastructure improvements have, and will continue to, put the farmer's capacity to compete against competitors, both domestically and internationally, to the test. The farmer still has a place in our society, but he or she must be willing to adapt to change.

Topics to be discussed include: 

  • Types of Farm
  • What to Produce
  • Standards and Efficiencies
  • What is Management?

  • Explain the different grazing systems
  • Evaluate the types of lot feeding
  • Understand cropping systems

Animals or plants are raised on farms. Produce is acquired from an animal or plant at a given stage of development, sometimes by killing the organism and sometimes by removing something without killing the organism. There are several methods for producing the 'ultimate product' for most farm products.

Topics to be discussed include: 

  • Animal Production Systems
  • Grazing Systems
  • Lot Feeding
  • Age Group of Cattle
  • Slaughter Receipts
  • Pig Production & Confinement System

  • Biodynamic Farming
  • Permaculture

Unit Three: Managing Livestock

Learning Objectives: 

  • Summarize the factors involved in breeding healthy livestock
  • Identify causes of ill health
  • Understand the different types of food available

First and foremost, livestock management is deciding what animals to raise, then deciding which stages of their lives to include them in, and last, deciding how to care for them. All of these questions require users to choose from a variety of possibilities, and their decision is usually based on three factors.

Topics to be discussed include: 

  • Animal Health
  • Animal Nursing
  • Animal Foods
  • Terms and Definitions
  • Food Groups
  • Other Terms That Are Used
  • Food Processing Terms

Unit Four: Managing Pastures

Learning Objectives: 

  • Examine the considerations to be made when managing a pasture
  • Identify different types of pasture varieties
  • Outline pasture management principles

First and first, every cattle farmer is a pasture farmer. He can either use natural grasses or plant specific grasses to improve his pastures. A good farmer recognizes the various grasses and knows how to make the most of them. He'll be able to tell the difference between attractive and unwanted vegetation, as well as his stock's grazing patterns. Because there are so many elements to pasture, and each of these aspects is always changing, understanding and managing it is extremely difficult. In any given area, for example, there are many different types of plants used for grazing. Each plant has its own rhythm and will respond to environmental factors and treatment in a unique way.

Topics to be discussed include: 

  • Growth and Development of Grasses
  • Pasture Varieties
  • Major Types of Pasture Grass
  • Legumes and Their Importance in Pasture
  • Major Types of Legumes

  • Applying Grassland Management Principles

Unit Five: Managing Crops

Learning Objectives:

Crop management entails selecting and preparing a production schedule, as well as monitoring plant growth in order to do various job duties as needed.

Topics to be discussed include: 

  • Crop Selection
  • How Then Do You Decide What to Grow?
  • Where to Get Helpful Information
  • Statistics
  • Planning the Crop

Unit Six: Managing Equipment and Materials

Learning Objectives: 

  • Explain the importance of machinery maintenance
  • Understand the importance of managing feeds

When farmers are ready to conduct a project, they must ensure that they have the necessary materials and equipment on hand and in good working order. This necessitates foresight and preparation. Poor management can lead to the waste of money and time by purchasing items that are not required, or time by not having what is required when a work is about to be completed.

Topics to be discussed include: 

  • Managing Equipment and Machinery
  • Developing Engineering Solutions
  • Maintenance Procedures and Scheduling
  • Training Equipment Operators
  • Rules for Operators
  • Tractors
  • Manual Tools
  • Materials
  • Some Examples of Farm Materials

Unit Seven: Computer Applications

Learning Objectives: 

  • Describe how computers are of benefit to the Farming Industry

The use of computers to manage agricultural business operations is becoming more common. Computers are nothing more than tools that make it possible to complete a variety of tasks more quickly and easily. Like any other tool, they work well if used properly. Farmers who use computers for a growing number of tasks will be able to complete those tasks faster, better, and more efficiently.

Topics to be discussed include: 

  • What Can a Computer Do?
  • How Does it Work?
  • What is Software?
  • What Can Go Wrong?

Unit Eight: Farm Structure and Buildings

Learning Objectives: 

  • Explain the various structures and their uses in farming

On every farm, buildings and other facilities are a significant expense. Buildings and structures that are well-built will last for many years. Poorly constructed buildings and structures can collapse, endanger animals and humans, and cost a lot of money to repair. Barns, sheds, shelters, fences, animal yards, and water troughs are all frequent structures and buildings on farms.

  • Animal Shelters
  • Fencing

Unit Nine: Financial Management

Learning Objectives: 

  • Identify sources of funding available
  • Understand the requirements for setting up a business

For many individuals, farming is a way of life. It's a way of life that depends on their capacity to survive on the land. Farming requires knowledge of land use, animal breeding and raising, and working in harmony with nature. However, in order to stay afloat, a farmer must be able to run the farm as a company. Financial management is a continuous process, not a one-time choice. Annual budgeting, medium- and long-term plans, where to get financing, and what are the best profit investments must all be decided and reviewed on a regular basis. The first step is to comprehend what financial management entails.

Topics to be discussed include: 

  • Rural Finance Sources
  • Financial Terminology and Record Keeping
  • Financial Institutions
  • How Banks Can Help You

  • Trusts
  • Tax

Unit Ten: Marketing

Learning Objectives: 

  • Understand the different marketing strategies

In many respects, marketing is the most important aspect of a farm enterprise. Produce that is sold as a result of well-managed marketing is dumped, sold at a loss, or stockpiled; produce that is not sold as a result of poor marketing is discarded, sold at a loss, or stored. Any farmer's first marketing responsibility should be to stay on top of demand for his products. Produce it if you know how it will be sold.

Topics to be discussed include: 

  • Managing Farm Marketing
  • Agricultural Marketing
  • Meat Marketing
  • Wool Marketing
  • Marketing Poultry
  • Dairy Marketing

Unit Eleven: Farm Planning

Learning Objectives: 

  • Explain the importance of planning
  • Explain how to manage risk
  • Outline what is involved in a management plan

A well-managed farm necessitates meticulous planning. In most cases, users should plan months, if not years, ahead of time. Both the physical development of the farm property and the development of the farm business should be planned.

Topics to be discussed include: 

  • Managing Risk
  • Quality Management Systems
  • Strategic Planning
  • Planning Processes
  • Whole Farm Planning
  • Production Planning
  • Farm Management Plans
  • Preparing a Farm Business Plan

Unit Twelve: Staff Management

Learning Objectives: 

  • Explain your responsibility to maintain health and safety
  • Identify your responsibility regarding the supply of protective equipment

Handling Staff

Ask friends, other farmers, and suppliers if they know of anyone looking for job before placing an ad in a newspaper. Finding potential employees through networking or word-of-mouth referrals is a wonderful method to go. Most people are only willing to recommend someone in whom they have complete faith. Remember that by suggesting someone, the person providing the referral is putting his or her own reputation on the line.

Topics to be discussed include: 

  • Motivating Employees
  • Work Scheduling
  • Occupational Health and Safety

  • Understand the principles of irrigation

Water is in ever-increasing demand for agricultural, industrial, and home use around the world. Furthermore, much of the pure water accessible is becoming increasingly polluted. Obtaining enough good-quality water when you need it is already a constraint in many farm operations. Excess water, such as flooding or saline discharges, can be an issue at times.

Topics to be discussed include: 

  • Storage
  • Natural Water Resources
  • Water Quality
  • Water Quality Problems
  • Irrigation
  • Overhead Watering
  • Trickle Irrigation
  • Capillary Watering
  • Automatic Systems
  • Flood Irrigation
  • Scheduling Irrigation

Unit Fourteen: Diversification

Learning Objectives: 

  • Identify areas that a farming business could diversity into to support and supplement income

Traditional livestock industries such as cattle and sheep are becoming less reliable sources of income for many farms today. Changes in the international marketplace, land degradation issues, drought and flood, changing cost structures, and other factors are affecting farmers more than ever. Diversification, or having more than one source of revenue for a farm, is one way.

Topics to be discussed include: 

  • Possibilities
  • Value Add by Processing Farm Produce
  • Other Ideas

Recognition & Accreditation

All students who complete this course, receive a certificate of completion with a passing score (for the online assessment) and will be issued a certificate via email.

  • Explain the different grazing systems
  • Evaluate the types of lot feeding
  • Understand cropping systems

Animals or plants are raised on farms. Produce is acquired from an animal or plant at a given stage of development, sometimes by killing the organism and sometimes by removing something without killing the organism. There are several methods for producing the 'ultimate product' for most farm products.

Topics to be discussed include: 

  • Animal Production Systems
  • Grazing Systems
  • Lot Feeding
  • Age Group of Cattle
  • Slaughter Receipts

Unit Three: Managing Livestock

Learning Objectives: 

  • Summarize the factors involved in breeding healthy livestock
  • Identify causes of ill health
  • Understand the different types of food available

First and foremost, livestock management is deciding what animals to raise, then deciding which stages of their lives to include them in, and last, deciding how to care for them. All of these questions require users to choose from a variety of possibilities, and their decision is usually based on three factors.

Topics to be discussed include: 

  • Animal Health
  • Animal Nursing
  • Animal Foods
  • Terms and Definitions
  • Food Groups
  • Other Terms That Are Used

Unit Four: Managing Pastures

Learning Objectives: 

  • Examine the considerations to be made when managing a pasture
  • Identify different types of pasture varieties
  • Outline pasture management principles

First and first, every cattle farmer is a pasture farmer. He can either use natural grasses or plant specific grasses to improve his pastures. A good farmer recognizes the various grasses and knows how to make the most of them. He'll be able to tell the difference between attractive and unwanted vegetation, as well as his stock's grazing patterns. Because there are so many elements to pasture, and each of these aspects is always changing, understanding and managing it is extremely difficult. In any given area, for example, there are many different types of plants used for grazing. Each plant has its own rhythm and will respond to environmental factors and treatment in a unique way.

Topics to be discussed include: 

  • Growth and Development of Grasses
  • Pasture Varieties
  • Major Types of Pasture Grass
  • Legumes and Their Importance in Pasture

  • Where to Get Helpful Information
  • Statistics
  • Planning the Crop

Unit Six: Managing Equipment and Materials

Learning Objectives: 

  • Explain the importance of machinery maintenance
  • Understand the importance of managing feeds

When farmers are ready to conduct a project, they must ensure that they have the necessary materials and equipment on hand and in good working order. This necessitates foresight and preparation. Poor management can lead to the waste of money and time by purchasing items that are not required, or time by not having what is required when a work is about to be completed.

Topics to be discussed include: 

  • Managing Equipment and Machinery
  • Developing Engineering Solutions
  • Maintenance Procedures and Scheduling
  • Training Equipment Operators
  • Rules for Operators
  • Tractors

Farmers who use computers for a growing number of tasks will be able to complete those tasks faster, better, and more efficiently.

Topics to be discussed include: 

  • What Can a Computer Do?
  • How Does it Work?
  • What is Software?
  • What Can Go Wrong?

Unit Eight: Farm Structure and Buildings

For many individuals, farming is a way of life. It's a way of life that depends on their capacity to survive on the land. Farming requires knowledge of land use, animal breeding and raising, and working in harmony with nature. However, in order to stay afloat, a farmer must be able to run the farm as a company. Financial management is a continuous process, not a one-time choice. Annual budgeting, medium- and long-term plans, where to get financing, and what are the best profit investments must all be decided and reviewed on a regular basis. The first step is to comprehend what financial management entails.

Topics to be discussed include: 

  • Rural Finance Sources

In many respects, marketing is the most important aspect of a farm enterprise. Produce that is sold as a result of well-managed marketing is dumped, sold at a loss, or stockpiled; produce that is not sold as a result of poor marketing is discarded, sold at a loss, or stored. Any farmer's first marketing responsibility should be to stay on top of demand for his products. Produce it if you know how it will be sold.

Topics to be discussed include: 

  • Managing Farm Marketing
  • Agricultural Marketing
  • Meat Marketing
  • Wool Marketing

  • Explain the importance of planning
  • Explain how to manage risk
  • Outline what is involved in a management plan

A well-managed farm necessitates meticulous planning. In most cases, users should plan months, if not years, ahead of time. Both the physical development of the farm property and the development of the farm business should be planned.

Topics to be discussed include: 

  • Managing Risk
  • Quality Management Systems
  • Strategic Planning
  • Planning Processes
  • Whole Farm Planning
  • Production Planning
  • Farm Management Plans
  • Preparing a Farm Business Plan

Unit Twelve: Staff Management

Learning Objectives: 

  • Explain your responsibility to maintain health and safety
  • Identify your responsibility regarding the supply of protective equipment

Handling Staff

Ask friends, other farmers, and suppliers if they know of anyone looking for job before placing an ad in a newspaper. Finding potential employees through networking or word-of-mouth referrals is a wonderful method to go. Most people are only willing to recommend someone in whom they have complete faith. Remember that by suggesting someone, the person providing the referral is putting his or her own reputation on the line.

Topics to be discussed include: 

  • Motivating Employees
  • Work Scheduling
  • Occupational Health and Safety

Water is in ever-increasing demand for agricultural, industrial, and home use around the world. Furthermore, much of the pure water accessible is becoming increasingly polluted. Obtaining enough good-quality water when you need it is already a constraint in many farm operations. Excess water, such as flooding or saline discharges, can be an issue at times.

Topics to be discussed include: 

  • Storage
  • Natural Water Resources
  • Water Quality
  • Water Quality Problems
  • Irrigation
  • Overhead Watering
  • Trickle Irrigation
  • Capillary Watering
  • Automatic Systems
  • Flood Irrigation
  • Scheduling Irrigation

Unit Fourteen: Diversification

Learning Objectives: 

  • Identify areas that a farming business could diversity into to support and supplement income

Traditional livestock industries such as cattle and sheep are becoming less reliable sources of income for many farms today. Changes in the international marketplace, land degradation issues, drought and flood, changing cost structures, and other factors are affecting farmers more than ever. Diversification, or having more than one source of revenue for a farm, is one way.

Topics to be discussed include: 

  • Possibilities
  • Value Add by Processing Farm Produce
  • Other Ideas

Recognition & Accreditation

All students who complete this course, receive a certificate of completion with a passing score (for the online assessment) and will be issued a certificate via email.
