Ranch Hand Seeks hard work. Boring chores. Terrible weather.

  • Machinery: Developed and implemented “Machinery Maintenance Plan” for all Tractors trucks, ATV’s and devices.

3 years ago I started working towards my own ranch. I grew up on a first-generation farm building stone houses (pictures below).

Then took a little left turn for the next 25 years. I owned and ran a business and technology company. Now I would like to return to, recover, and rehabilitate our Western ranching traditions and values.

Here is where I work hard in return for your help. I have much experience, just not in direct ranching. I can contribute in many ways and help you transition to success in these changing times. In return I seek more experience with operations- All the daily, unpredictable, demanding, unexpected hard physical challenges that I have learned so far. Just much more. You call it boring, I call it great!

This might take a little explaining, but I think you will appreciate my skills once we have talked.

Thank you for taking the time,
