Rural Animal Technology

Rural animal technology is an ideal for career for people who love animals of all sizes, or who have been brought up on a farm or in a rural town, and know the value of cows, horses, goats, and more.

Rural animal technicians are part of the front line of care for these creature. Daily, rural animal technicians could do anything from helping rural veterinarians tend to sick or injured animals, docking and foot care to pregnancy testing and aiding births, carrying out research and advising on disease prevention for pets and farm animals.
