I have an opening on a cattle ranch for a summer intern. The work experience gained would consist of working with the cow herd, sorting and moving cattle to summer pastures. We also synchronize and heat detect cows for an embryo transplant program. Cutting and baling hay, checking water, fencing and monitoring pastures for a rotational grazing program are also part of the duties. Some knowledge of cattle and operation of machinery would be helpful.


The ranch is located in northwest Nebraska. We run about 500 cow calf pairs, 100 yearling replacement heifers and have 1000 acres of dryland alfalfa and hay to harvest. We are 12 miles from a town with a population of 5000 which has most amenities. We are about 75 miles from the Black Hills of South Dakota, which has a lot of interesting sites to visit, and 100 miles from Rapid City which has a population of about 75,000.


Wages would depend on experience. Housing could be obtained 12 miles from the ranch. For more information e-mail or call in the evening 308-432-5230.
