This hands-on position includes care of cattle, all types of irrigation, fencing, equipment operation and maintenance, sound farming practices, and assisting the Ranch Manager with other miscellaneous duties as required.

The Ranch Hand must maintain the highest standards of organization and neatness regarding the visual appearance of ranch vehicles, infrastructure, and the natural landscape.
