Job Description

Growing Cattle Company producing quality stock located outside of Paris, Tennessee, including Bucking Bulls, Rough Stock, Cows, and Calves across two working farms. We combine strong industry traditions with cutting-edge animal husbandry practices, advanced technology, and the latest management practices. Anchored by our strong history, our modern operations are complemented by unwavering care for the animals, land, community and the people with whom we work.
 
We’re growing and hiring a full-time, year-round Farm Operations Team Member to our team.
We are looking for serious and like-minded cattle professionals with proven expertise in our field. 
In this role, you will be handling a variety of tasks from working by yourself running cattle operations to leading field operations with the team in this hands-on role. You will focus on quality work, solving in-the-moment problems, all the while maximizing time and resources. During the winter you will focus on specialty carpentry projects depending on your background. Given our size, there is plenty of room for growth within the organization for the right motivated individual. There is opportunity for travel to/from bucking bull events that could result in bonus opportunities given the placement of event bulls for those attended events.
 
We offer compensation dependent on the right candidate's background and experience.
This position does have peak hours during the summer months, including longer hours and some weekends, but sticks to a 40 hour and under work week. This is not your typical 9 to 5 role. We are a working farm so please keep this in mind when applying, the hours will vary within the 40hr work week, and there is opportunity for overtime for the right candidate and hard working team member.
 
This position is for you if you:

  • Have experience in a relatable field, such as: animal husbandry, agriculture, farming, construction, etc.
  • Are a highly motivated, honest, out-of-the-box thinker who takes direction well and can also bring new ideas to the table.
  • Work well on your own, as well as in a team environment with the Farm Operations Manager & the Owner on the execution day-to-day operations and on-going projects

We are very team minded and looking for very motivated members who can come in the front gate each day ready to work, add value, and help us continuously move forward. In this role you can expect absolute transparency, and constructive criticism. We are raising champion stock and want our team members focused in this same mindset as we grow and get through the day on the ranch. There will be times that it might just be a rough day and nothing seems likes its going right, but in the end we all work together to accomplish the goal(s) and get through the BS because there is going to be BS on a farm, but also a lot of reward.
 
Responsibilities include:

  • You will be responsible for the day-to-day caring for and monitoring animals, with a high focus on quality control in the fields, equipment maintenance and management, and ensure accurate collection of data in field.
  • Assist with staff with veterinary planning and care.
  • Adhere to safety standards and standard operating procedures.
  • Assist in other areas of the operation, as needed

Job Type: Full-time
Experience: animal husbandry, farming, agribusiness, military, and/or construction: 5+ years (Preferred)
Education: Associate (Preferred)
License: Operators (Preferred)
If you think and feel you’re the right candidate, we look forward to hearing from you as we want our new team member ready to work and be a part of our success. The stop could be the best decision you make and we look forward to meeting you as your success will be our success, so let's get to work.
