WE NEED HELP NOW! I AM OLDER...67, AND MY WIFE IS 53...and she is 90% of the labor. We would like to sell the dog business, but are willing to turn it over to the right person. If this interests you please feel free to inquire! We usually run about 150 mother sheep with lambs. We run about 150 mother cows with their calves and many additional calves. We have a few dairy cattle, so we graft additional calves onto each cow. Our primary business is raising Livestock Guardian Dogs. We have been doing this since 1990 so we are very seasoned in what we do. We can use help all year round. We calve and lamb from May thru June as a rule. We have puppies all year long. Our operation is very labor intensive so good work ethic is a must. Some days are long and some are short. Much of it depends on the weather. In addition to daily chores, there is maintenance as well as domestic duties. You will be provided with everything you need while here. Even though this is a volunteer program, we have been known to hire on some interns once their commitment is up. We live in a community where there is much to do and there are many places to visit, i.e. Yellowstone Park. We are very serious in what we do as all of the animals depend on us. We ask that you be serious as well.
