3. Progressive Wyoming Farm

Looking to fill a position with a farming/ranching operation in Wyoming with a VERY progressive operation. This is not your average farmhand position, as they are looking for someone with an Ag degree (this is a must), whether it be in Ag Business, Agronomy, Crops or Animal Science -- and they would prefer a person who has a solid experience on both sides of the agriculture business. Please let me know ASAP if you know of anyone that I should speak with and please feel free to pass along to your students and former students, as it is rare that a position ever becomes available with this operation. Here are a few specifics regarding this opportunity:

Again, this operation is a very progressive and forward-thinking farming/ranching operation that prides itself in keeping up with the latest ag technology. This is a low-stress cattle operation, so individuals with experience in low-stress cattle operations will be a plus. They are looking for an extroverted person who has solid communication skills, as this person will be handling the management of a number of employees and interns. This person must be passionate about agriculture and have a lifelong history of experience in farming/ranching.

They are looking to get this position filled ASAP, so qualified candidates MUST apply ASAP. Please feel free to forward this email along to anyone that you see fit, and please have them email me a confidential resume right away. Thank you for your help.
