Briefly describe your current occupation(s) and responsibilities and list previous agricultural employment and experiences. If you are currently farming or ranching, please state the size, type(s), and location of the operation.My wife and I are currently working in Nebraska on a cow/ calf operation. It runs 1500 head of cattle in the pan handle of Nebraska. We have worked here for a year this august. We do everything that a ranch expects from its employees such as : tagging calves, breaking colts, moving cows, roping cattle to doctor, repairing haying equipment, feeding during the winter, trailing cattle 17 miles to the feedlot, haying during the summer and roping calves at brandings.I have held an internship on the largest cow calf operation in North America that resides in Florida. They run 40,000 head of mother cows on just under 400,000 acres. I have also worked on a cow calf operation in Vernal Utah for just under a year. It was a 500 head operation that summered on over 17,00 acres in north eastern Utah. I will be graduating next April from Utah State University with a bachelors in Animal Science with a minor in Agricultural Business.
