Ranching, cowboying and farming are what I grew up doing. I have worked on both cow-calf and feedlot operations. Both jobs included haying and one a large amount of farming.
At the feed lot I was in charge of branding yearling's, pulling out sick cattle, feeding, haying and keeping the machinery up.
I was responsible for spraying all of the fields as well as fertilizing.
On the cow calf operations I am very experienced with pulling calves and recognizing when a cow will calve.
Sweet Grass has both cow calf and steers. I helped calve out about 40 head of heifers as well as about 150 cows, with that number growing to approximately 600 total to calve out this next winter.
I also built new fences, worked on machinery, and supplied cows with minerals and salt. I also attended a few conferences on mineral rations. Put up all our hay and have worked to clean up the ranch in the slower time of year.
I have always worked as a hired hand but in that time on the feed lot I was given the responsibility of branding yearling's as they came into the feedlot, making sure they were administered all of their shots and that the bulls got cut. Riding through pens and looking for sick cattle, keeping machinery up, feeding cattle correct rations.
As far as the farming was concerned I did all of the spraying and figuring out the computerized mechanics of it. I can do all the different jobs in haying.
I had hired on to be the wrangler for the outfitting business but earned a spot as well guiding hunts. I was only there for the hunting season but in that time learned how to deal with many different kinds of people.
Frontier is a one year school that offers Bible study courses but no degrees. I attended one year of college there and then began working for my Uncle at Busenitz Land and Cattle.
As far as high school I was home schooled and received my GED.
All of my job skills have been learned hands on which helps me be able to adapt to new skills easily as well as think for myself.
