Due to the large response, we cannot respond to the volume of phone calls we have had. We apologize for the unanswered calls received thus far. Please email us your resume This ad has been amended for more detail.

If you have read this ad previously, please review to ensure this is a fit for you. This is not a typical ranch job.

This is not a cowboy job. There is no need for roping. If you want to ride you can. There are times a good horse makes things easier.

This is not a management job. We are looking for intelligent people who can and will think and think out of the box. Ideas, thoughts, and input are welcomed, expected, and embraced here. The ranch manager will listen. You will participate and be heard. Your ideas will be incorporated, yet you will be expected to carry out the managerís final decision. An established, younger person who knows the operation, will make decisions when the manager is not present.

Most cow movements will be with 4-wheeler, tractor/feeder, or even on foot. There are times when a horse is handy, but this is not an open range kind of job. Most of our pastures are irrigated valley bottom lands in narrow mountain vallies. You can ride if you prefer.

We run a small herd of purebred Wagyu that we are rebuilding and growing. Semen collection and embryo work has been done in the past with more plans for the future, but currently not on-going. This part of the program is being re-established again under new management.

We also run a herd of 200 head quality red angus. The Angus herd is propagated with AI work. The majority of the herd is bred to Wagyu for F1 calves that are marketed multiple ways. The herd will be maintained at about 300 head. There are 2 + full-time employees tasked with herd maintenance.

The herds are managed as though two registered herds with intense data collection and records keeping. The calf crop will consist of registered animals and commercial, naturally raised calves. Record keeping is essential to meet registry needs as well as the natural programís needs. You will be weighing calves at calving and involved with detailed record keeping. Each time the cattle are worked, weights and data are collected via RFID technology and entered into our custom database for analysis. We have a custom programmed data system.

Low stress handling is expected. Every aspect of what we do revolves around the cattleís best interest and keeping stress low. Dogs are not allowed around young calves/pairs. Due to our large predator population, we will not train cows that they cannot defend against canines as they have to; often.

Most of our pastures are irrigated with wheelines. While we hire seasonal irrigators, you may have to participate in moving irrigation lines. We put up around 300 tons of round bales, but buy the majority of our hay.

The ranch contains 10 homes that are used by the family as a family guest ranch and corporate retreat. The grounds are maintained in pristine shape. While a summer groundskeeper is hired, there may be times your help will be needed for grounds work, roof cleaning, tree falling, firewood cutting, deck staining, Christmas lights and other tasks. Housekeepers are part of our staff. You may be called upon to help them with trapping rodents or move heavy items. Be aware, tasks will fall outside of livestock related duties.

Benefits include a generous salary, a three bedroom house, utilities paid, 1/2 beef, work truck, and corporate benefits. Our benefit package is provided by the parent company and consistent with city type corporate packages. You will have to provide an internet connection. Satellite service is the only option at the house. Cell service does not reach the ranch. The ranch will accommodate two horses. There is horse pasture with the house, but no shelter there. There is an elementary school across the highway.

Married couples are welcomed. If the spouse is interested in summer work and part-time off season hours, that would work well. This position is best suited for someone comfortable in a tractor with some livestock experience. This would work well for someone with a degree in animal science and a propensity to learn our way of doing things. A.I. work would be a bonus. Common sense and intelligence is the most valued attribute.

Ideally, we would like to find someone competent in running heavy equipment, competent in handling cattle, can do A.I work, and someone who puts the needs of the cattle first.

We reside in a mountainous areas. We get spells of temperatures as low as -30 and snow. While it is beautiful in the summer, winters can be long.
