If you are keen to learn, then there are opportunities galore in agriculture.
That's according to 27-year-old Josh Philp, who manages his family dairy farm at Garvoc in south-west Victoria.
"The internet is wonderful thing; there's plenty of information out there if you are willing to look for it," he said.
Milk prices have taken a hit this season, but he said it was important to stay focused – and positive.
"I definitely see a future in dairying," he said.
"Milk prices are down, but you've got to get smarter.
"We've survived on less money than this before."
Capital expenditure will come to a halt this year, but he said it was still vital to keep on top of farm maintenance such as lane-ways, fencing and fertiliser application.
The New Zealand-born farmer is actively involved with South Ecklin and local Dairy Australia Focus Farm discussion groups, as well as the Red Sky farm business group – which looks comprehensively at the operations' bottom line.
But it does not stop there.
He is also half way through a 'Pastures for Profit' course that will teach him valuable tools to improve the grazing side of the business.
The end goal is to take over his parents' farm, but that is still a while off yet.
"Everything is set up," he said.
"My parents are still doing the books, but in three years I'll take over the budgeting.
"It's probably a 5-7-year process."
At the moment, 700 crossbred cows are milked across 1000 hectares.
About 170-200 replacement heifers are reared on-farm annually.
Before returning to the family business two years ago, Mr Philp spent 18 months working on a Western Australian cropping and cattle feedlot operation, as well as four years with Landmark's merchandise sector at Mortlake.
But when he made the decision to finally come home, the farm had to get bigger.
"We bought out the neighbour's place last year, which allowed us to milk an extra 100 cows," he said.
"Opportunities to buy land next door rarely come up around here, so we had to take it.
"And we've been able to increase numbers as a result."
Mr Philp is stepping up to the plate and is responsible for two full-time employees, as well as a milker.
Calving starts in mid-March, while joining is in mid-June.
He remains confident about a future in dairying and is looking forward to improving and building on his parents' operation.
"There is a certain stigma attached to the industry that farmers are working 24 hours a day, seven days a week," he said.
"But that's not true and we really need to promote the lifestyle side of the industry."
He said image remained the biggest obstacle to attracting people to agriculture.
In fact, Mr Philp works just five days out of seven and milks once each day.
"We've set it up so the operation is flexible and everyone gets time off," he said.
"At the most, we are working 40 hours each."
He also encourages his young employees to take up further learning, with both boys in the process of completing certificate three in agriculture.
And apart from generating an image overhaul, he added environmental challenges would be one of the biggest issues facing the dairy industry in the future.
Earlier this year, he took part in a Murray-Goulburn supplier tour to NZ and stringent controls were already in place there.
Australia's turn would come soon enough, he said.
"We are going to see regulations on fertiliser use, and effluent storage and disposal tighten up," he said.
On the Philp farm, a two-pond effluent system works well. Liquid effluent is pumped across to an irrigation dam that services 80ha of pasture.
"It gives us the opportunity to grow a lot of grass and we really plan our season around that so there's plenty of feed when calving happens," he said.
