Fox Cattle Co.
The Regenerative Ranching Summer Internship (May-August, September – November optional) is a paid educational opportunity that provides broad exposure and experience for individuals interested in regenerative ranching systems. This program is designed to offer hands-on experience, as well as formal sit-down learning sessions for a complete learning experience. Over the summer, interns gain introductory experience in land and soil stewardship, animal husbandry, regenerative cattle grazing techniques and ranch business management principles.
Regenerative Ranching Interns work primarily with the ranch’s owners to care for the ranch and its animals. Fox Cattle Co. approaches ranching and land management holistically and therefore works to optimize the soil and animal health to form a sustainable business model for generations to come.
About Fox Cattle Co.
Fox Cattle Co is a 4500-acre cattle ranch in the east-central area of Saskatchewan, Canada. Our family team uses a well-established system of landscape management in support of our business and production goals. Our system centers around adaptive multi-paddock grazing of both perennial and annual forage crops. The primary tools in this system are comprised of 300 mother cows and 400 grass cattle. These aspects combine into a Regenerative Ranching Initiative that demonstrates the practices and benefits of regenerative beef production.
Candidates must be at least 18 years of age with the ability to safely perform ranch-related duties including 10+ hour days (as needed) in summer outdoor conditions. Candidates must be able to safely exert a considerable amount of physical effort to hike on steep terrain, stoop, crouch, climb, and lift as much as 50 pounds in performance of assigned duties and work around animals, farm tools, and heavy equipment and in environments that may contain dust, noise, heat, cold, rain, brush, and ticks. A valid driver's license and a clean driving record (no major infractions) are strongly preferred.
We are looking for candidates from all academic disciplines and professional backgrounds. Most prior interns have a college degree or are working towards one, however, this is not a requirement. Prior experience working outdoors and with livestock is desired, but also not required. Successful applicants will be self-motivated, curious, hardworking and able to communicate well. Interns will be expected to work 40-50 hours/week and some evenings and/or weekends. Interns will have one full day off per week. On-site housing is provided.
