My name is Charlie S., I'm 24 years old and I'm from Germantown Wisconsin. I have been working on a large beef farm in West Bend, Wisconsin for 5 years now, but am looking for something different. I love cattle but would prefer to work with grazing cattle rather than in barns. My responsibilities over the last 5 years are as listed.
- Cattle feeding
- Cattle health management (herdsman)
- – – Vaccinations
- – – Castration
- – – Dehorning
- – – Implanting
- – – Walking pens
- – – Treatment of sick animals
- Sorting cattle for shipping
- Trucking cattle between farms
- Management of employees for bedding and working cattle
- Bedding production/baling and picking up bales
- Feed production
- – – Dry Hay
- – – Hay and Corn silage chopping
- Grain crop production
- Heavy Equipment Operation
- – – Large Tractors
- – – Wheel loader
- – – Skid loader
- – – Semi Truck
- Equipment maintenance/repair
- Barn maintenance/repair
- BQA/BQAT certified
I'm sure there's more little random things I've done but that's the main stuff.
I do not have very much horse experience but would like to learn if someone is willing to spend some time with me on that. I do know a little about breeding and calving, but the farm I was at is only feeders. I am very willing to learn though and I can quickly. I work really well on my own. When someone trusts me to get the job done and doesn't have to check in or watch me constantly, I get it done.
I am willing to move a ways from Wisconsin, but would probably need housing if that's available.
Willing to Relocate to: CO, WY, MT, NE, KS, OK, ND, SD, MO, MN
Thank you for your consideration.
