I'd trade fame

For one more day of buckaroo'n on a horse that's half way lame.

LOL...come on now...there isn't anything wrong with wanting to cowboy for a living.

Now is the best time for him to go do it, while he's young. He can go to college anytime...
Cowboying is harder as you get older

Exactly what Cowchick said, I've always wanted to do this, so I figure I should do it now while I don't have any ties here.

I talked to a friend today that was raised in South Dakota and actually has family in South Dakota with cattle farms and Texas with a feedlot, and she said she would hook me up! So now I just need to get my funds straight.

I don't suppose it would be anywhere close to my area but you'll have to let me know what part of TX you may end up in.

If you'd be willing, I would most definetly look into taking this course:
Western Ranch & Cow Horse Program | Lakeland College

I know it's in Canada, but it's pretty much the experience and training you need, all in a one year course.

I'm most likely going to take it, and see where I want to go from there on. I've handled cows my whole life, so there will be no issues there, but there is buisness parts that I think would be very beneficial. Plus you get to ride a horse. All the time

I'm planning on taking the course, so if you reeeeally want to get into the cattle industry, I would look into a course very similar.

What exactly is a PFRA job?

The PFRA is a environmental organization up here that has a bunch of big community pastures... So basically you'd be cowboying in a community pasture all year... Here's some info on that: http://esask.uregina.ca/entry/community_pastures.html

"PFRA operates eighty community pastures across the Prairies, with sixty-two pastures in Saskatchewan covering 710,000 ha. Not only do these federal government pastures make up one of the largest ranching operations in North America, but by keeping these lands under permanent cover, a great deal of the prairies’ diverse plant, insect, bird, reptile and mammal life is maintained. In Saskatchewan, forty-nine of the pastures—some of the last uncultivated land on the prairies—provide a home for “species at risk” as defined by the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada. Over the past two decades, PFRA-led studies and demonstrations have promoted a better understanding and adoption of measures to address soil erosion, marginal land use, riparian zone management, water quality, and adaptation to climatic risk and change."

Oh OK! I will have to read more about it. But it sounds similar to the BLM and USFS here in the states.

Thanks for the info!
