The objectives set to bring animal husbandry to an advanced level and to a certain standard are important in Turkey. Agriculture is mostly done in the conventional manner in Turkey and producers and farmers do not need to improve themselves. In contrast to population growth across the country, there is a significant decrease in agricultural production. The reason for this, it can be said that the reasons such as the lack of security of the working people in the sector, the fact that they do not receive a wage that can sustain their lives, the lack of infrastructure to carry out training programs for constantly changing and developing. We can define herd management as providing the animals with optimum care and welfare conditions, achieving the desired target for fertility, reproduction, and nutrition and preventing animal diseases and management-related losses in livestock enterprises. The main objective of herd management and a manager is to increase animal production to breeders and to provide economic returns that can provide sustainability and competitiveness in enterprises. In addition, it is to minimize or completely eliminate the material losses that may occur by means of more cost-effective and efficiently organized programs. In order to solve all these problems, herd management should be considered as an educated and organized profession. As a result of the training of certified herd management, breeders who are employed without registration and social security must be provided with registered status, increase the number of registered employees and achieve professional status by providing organization. It is important that certificate is a prerequisite for the grower to benefit from government support, incentives, grants, subsidies, and other national and international projects.
