My husband & I have a cow/calf operation of mostly registered Red Angus cattle. We have 150 head to calve. Also we have 10 horses,1 miniature donkey, 3 border collie dogs and 2 barn cats. Our small ranch is a half hour drive north of Fort St. John, in beautiful northern British Columbia, Canada.

We own 480 acres in a farming/ranching community. Workers will learn about raising purebred cattle. We also do our own artificial insemination (early April) on the purebred cattle. There will also be opportunities to learn about and ride horses, and also about using working cattle dogs. Our busy time of year is calving & AI'ing which is early January to mid April, (this is my priority months to have some help). If workers wanted to stay longer, they would be welcome to stay after this time, with more time off.

We start calving about January 5th. My husband works in the Oil & Gas industry, (5-6 days/week). The main thing I would like help with is with the cattle. These jobs could include checking on the cattle for when they start to calve (they may need to go in the barn if it is cold), cleaning the barn, helping to feed cows, (round bales with a tractor) feeding grain to yearling bulls, and halter breaking calves. Also, when calves are born, they need to be weighed, tagged & given vitamin needles. Also, some help with cooking & dishes.
We live in a log house, and our guests would have the whole basement which includes their own bedroom and bathroom. We eat 3 meals/day with our supper being a family sit-down meal. We are Christians & say Grace at supper time. We eat our own beef, a well as some wild game including moose, deer & elk. We eat a lot of vegetables as well. (As well as potatoes, rice & pasta).
Depending on the season, there are many opportunities for recreation in our area, including horseback riding, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, hiking, fishing & hunting.
We have 3 grown daughters, all with families of their own, (4 grand-sons & 1 grand-daughter:) family is very important to us!
