Job Description

Full Time:
Yes
Number of Workers Requested:
18
Job Duties:
Prairie dog trapping. It is seasonal work since we can't have traps out while we are grazing and or harvesting the fields during the summer growing season. Traps need to be placed over the holes which are located in perimeter and within the field boundaries. Prairie dog networks are extensive underground, if traps are placed over all holes in the community they will exit though holes without traps and trapping will be ineffective. Prairie dogs are a major issue in organic production and extremely difficult to control. The best method we have found is trapping but it requires daily observation, setting, and resetting of traps. Late fall through early spring we have had excellent luck in controlling the population. Spreading manure on fields, this can only be done in the winter, and once grazing is done. Scraping pens for additional manure to put on the fields. Repairing fences and water troughs in the fields after grazing is complete. Breeding cows and hoof trimming. This is done at a higher volume in the cooler months because there is not as much heat stress and we house most of the cattle for hoof trimming preventative maintenance. Heat stress has a negative impact on cows showing when they are cycling, and in the cooler months we have a lot of cows in heat and need extra help with breeding these cows. Upon occasion workers may be required to dig ditches and install or repair water lines, sheds, barns, stock tanks and other structures on the farm. This includes the use of tractors and equipment maintenance if needed. Unload trucks with bales of hay. Work requires repetitive movements and extensive walking.
