Worked on a beef cattle ranch for three years until owner decided to sell his herd for personal reasons. While working there I had to herd the charolais cattle on foot, assist the owner with deworming, give the cattle water as often as needed, and fed them: potein bars, grain, hay, and regular pasture grass. Prior to that I worked at a horse ranch and my duties included: mucking, feeding, giving the horses fresh water, cleaning out their hooves, grooming, giving them proper medicines and supplements, and exercising them.
