This candidate has rode/broke/tuned up horses and worked cattle his whole life. He can determine how and why an animal is sick and what to use to vaccinate the animal correctly whether its pneumonia, foot rot, heart failure, etc. He was employed on a large feedyard where he started out as a vet tech; doctoring cattle, and posting deceased cattle at necropsy. Then a year later he started riding pens. During the time that he was there riding pens he had less then 1% death loss overall on a 120,000 head operation. At another large feedlot he rode pens for a year and had a similar death loss (less then 1%) and after a year of having a good working relationship with crew and cattle manager he was offered the head cowboy position. He held that title for three years before he decided to leave to peruse a position in which he still rode pens but also had the additional duties of creating work schedules, shipping schedules, ordering vaccines for hospital and horses on property, as well as train new hires no matter how inexperienced or seasonal they were. his other duties were to work in office calculating shipping load sheets on number of head per semi load, and use computer programs as well.
