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.I run a commercial cow heard of eighty five head. I currently lease pasture from my father in-law east of Geraldine. In addition to running cattle I also preform daily farm tasks including seeding, spraying, combining, hauling grain and service on all equipment. For extra income I work for another ranch/farm doing cattle work, fencing, and night calving from February until my cows start in march. During the haying season I also do custom baling for people.

Please elaborate on the type(s) of agricultural operation you plan on running.I plan on running cows with short intense grazing patterns from May until September, when I can put them on stubble with chaff bunches where they will stay until calving. I calve in March and April, and wean calves in September. From there I will feed calves until around the first of the year. I am also looking to find some of my own farm ground to lease or purchase to start farming on my own.
