The manager works to ensure everything on the farm runs smoothly whether it means their working in the office, the shed or being out in the field.

Becoming a manager is not an instant thing, although there are generally no official qualifications required to become a farm manager it takes years of experience getting to know the workings of a farm before you will have knowledge and experience required to run it. Even though no formal qualifications are generally required it is becoming more common for mangers to have a university degree often in course such as agribusiness, agriculture or agricultural science.
