01) My level of experience in the livestock industry exceeds 30 years
02)Raised on a cattle ranch in Southeastern Oregon (1961-1979) I lived the everyday experiences one encounters in the livestock industry. I learned first-hand how to care for and manage cattle, horses, sheep and hogs. It was necessary to not only know and recognize our own livestock, but to be able to identify livestock belonging to other ranchers as well. We lived in a vast open range area where ranchers cattle pastured common ground and cattle always mixed. I learned at an early age to recognize neighboring ranches brands and to notify owners where their cattle were found. I advanced my knowledge through 4-H and Animal Science.
I spent 4 years working on various ranches throughout Central and Eastern Oregon.
I continued my livestock endeavors through ranch leases from 1986-1998. I raised purebred Red Angus cattle, then purchasing my own ranch in 2004. During this time I worked part-time for a feedlot and the Oregon Brand Department. I stayed involved with local and National cattle industry, local law enforcement and served on various boards.

identifying multiple breeds and crossbreeds of cattle
recognizing health issues and injuries in cattle, horses, and various other livestock animals
Competent in everyday feed requirements for livestock
Efficient in keeping calving records, vaccination records, pasture movement records, breed association records, registrations, monitoring current cattle market, tax records & forms, payroll, equipment maintenance and records
04) My experience in livestock marketing include, but not limited to:
Daily duties include marketing live cattle, bull semen and embryos. Live cattle sales include cows, bulls, heifers, calves, steers and often custom orders. Setting prices on private treaty sales requires keeping current with the commercial cattle market.
