I have been in the oil and gas sector for the last 7 years and was kind of getting tired of the everyday grind my job entailed. So decided to look for a new job and found a ranch just outside of town looking for a ranch hand. Long story short I interviewed, got the job and start on the 23 of August.
Looking forward to the change as it will involve a lot of riding as they do all cattle handling off a horse plus more physical than the desk job I had downtown. They calve out 450 cows each spring combined between a commercial herd and a purebred horned Hereford herd. On top of that they have about 1200 acres of crop land and some hay to put up each year.
Just wanted to share because I am pretty excited and at the same time a bit nervous to make the change.
Have a good one!!
