We are looking for a worker to help us seasonally to winter cattle scheduled to be shipped in the spring to summer grass. Our program is to buy, in the fall of the year, 300-500# bawling steer calves which we wean. During this weaning process they are fed a total mixed ration.

This worker will be responsible for feeding a ration to calves, equipment maintenance, helping with animal health and putting in and taking out temporary electric fence on fields.

We farm 10,000 acres of corn, wheat, and soybeans in southwestern Nebraska. It is mostly an irrigated farm with some dryland. We farm in Nebraska and Colorado as we live four miles from the Colorado state line. We have newer John Deere equipment and modern shops and practices. We utilize GPS in our tractors and also track pivot sprinklers this way. Employees will need to know how to drive a semi for corn harvest, but do not have to have a CDL because we do not travel more than 150 miles from the farm hauling our own crops. Employees need to have prior farm knowledge and be familiar with sprinklers and general farming practices. Duties vary by month: March-May is field work and planting, June-August is running pivots, September-November is corn harvest, and December begins equipment clean up from the harvest. Employees will assist with all aspects of growing and harvesting these crops. Employees will need to complete routine repairs and maintenance on equipment.\n\n****Please note that for 2023 we will be adjusting our starting date to March 10th to cover our entire crop season.
We are a family agricultural company that is dedicated to providing two types of services to farms in specific seasons of the year:\n\n1. During the months of January to April, we clean the stables where the cattle are fed, we load the cattle manure to later be transferred and spread on site since it is used as fertilizer to fertilize the land.\n\n2. During the months of May to December, we harvest and ensilage wheat, oats, alfalfa, which consists of cutting the plant from the ground and then grinding it and finally being used in different ranches as feed for cattle, in the last semester of the year we also harvest and ensilage corn, which is one of the main foods for feeding livestock.\n\nWe need seasonal employees to temporally assist our company during the months of July to December to harvest and ensilage wheat, oats, alfalfa, and corn. Temporary employees will operate farm equipment used in agricultural production, such a tractors, combines, and irrigation equipment. Manipulate controls to set, activate, and adjust mechanism on machinery. Adjust and service farm machinery and notify supervisors when machinery malfunctions. Attach farm implements such as plows, discs, sprayers, or harvesters to tractors, using bolts and hand tools. Load hoppers, containers, and conveyors to feed machines with products, using forklifts, transfer augers, suction gates, shovels, and pitchforks. Operate towed machines. Drive trucks to haul crops, supplies, tools, and farm workers. Guide products on conveyors to regulate flow through machines, and to discard diseased and rotten products. Position boxes and attach bags at discharge ends of machinery to catch products, removing and closing full containers.\n
Workers will perform assigned duties as instructed by their supervisor. The worker will walk down the aisles between the plants in the corn fields, for the purpose of detasseling seed corn, remove rogue plants, weeds, and volunteer corn plants from seed corn production fields.\n\nIn order to perform this kind of work must be able to work outside for at least six-6 hours a day in all kinds of weather and be in possession of the requisite strength and endurance, working quickly and skillfully with their hands\n\nDetasseling corn: Workers must comprise the ability to interpret the difference between male and female seed plants. Workers are required to remove all tassels from female rows of corn at the minimum rate of 0.10 acres per hour. If a worker does not detassel at the minimum rate of 0.10 acres per hour they will slow down the productivity of other workers who will have to account for the ineffective workers negligence. Also, a worker moving at a pace less than 0.10 acres per hour will fail to meet the federal minimum wage standard. It is important to pull tassel in a timely fashion to avoid the production of pollen. If pollen is allowed to produce the crop will be jeopardized. Tassels must be pulled straight out of the top of the corn plant, leaving all leaves with the plant. Workers are required to scan each row high and low to make certain all tassels are removed. In some fields, a cutter machine will cut the tips of the tassels from the female plants, followed by a puller machine that will go through and pull 40% - 85% of the tassels. Detasselers will then go through the fields to remove the remaining partial tassels that are not missed by the machine. Detasselers must remove 99.7% - 100% of the tassels in the female rows to discourage a female corn plant from pollinating itself. Meaning that crews can only miss three (3) of every one-thousand (1,000) plants before the job is deemed complete. When a worker misses greater than three (3) tassels of every one thousand (1000) plants an inspector will deem the job a failure, requesting that workers re-inspect the field to confirm the removal of missed tassels. If the worker is not mindful and removes leaves unnecessarily, or does not entirely remove tassels the crop will be harmed. Consequently, if workers are not cognizant of the noted standards one must maintain to detassel corn the crop will be damaged and adversely affect productivity.\n\nQuality Checker: The worker may be asked to check the quality by moving down a row checking quality to ensure that all seed tassels were sufficiently removed. They will report issues to work supervisor.\n\n\n\n

Ranchers specialize in nurturing and caring for these young animals. Cow-calf raisers must keep track of breeding and calving season, and they must have enough rudimentary veterinary skills to aid heifers in the birthing of calves and even in the treatment of animals that are wounded or hurt during the birthing process. Deceased animals will be removed and transported to location where repurposing carcasses will occur. Moving or herding cattle to and from different pastures, transporting animals to new locations or to market, protecting the herd from wild animals or even poachers and providing basic veterinary care to sick or injured animals as the need arises. As with any piece of property, a ranch requires a great degree of general maintenance and oversight. Because of the vastness of many ranches, this work includes tasks such as building and repairing fences to separate pastures and building and maintaining all buildings on the property, maintaining machinery, trucks, tractors, and other equipment used in ranching. Other maintenance tasks for entry level ranch jobs include groundskeeping, operating machinery such as mowing and baling hay fields, tractors/loaders, mechanical machines to grind up carcasses, removing dead or fallen trees and ensuring there are no poisonous or dangerous plants or animals on the property that could harm the livestock, daily irrigation of fields using modern sprinkler systems, setting up irrigation tubes to direct water to specific areas and digging new ditches to move water to new locations.

Workers will perform assigned duties as instructed by their supervisor. The worker will walk down the aisles between the plants in the corn fields, for the purpose of detasseling seed corn, remove rogue plants, weeds and volunteer corn plants from seed corn production fields.\n\nIn order to perform this kind of work must be able to work outside for at least six-6 hours a day in all kinds of weather and be in possession of the requisite strength and endurance, working quickly and skillfully with their hands\n\nDetasseling corn: Workers must comprise the ability to interpret the difference between male and female seed plants. Workers are required to remove all tassels from female rows of corn at the minimum rate of 0.10 acres per hour. If a worker does not detassel at the minimum rate of 0.10 acres per hour they will slow down the productivity of other workers who will have to account for the ineffective workers negligence. Also, a worker moving at a pace less than 0.10 acres per hour will fail to meet the federal minimum wage standard. It is important to pull tassel in a timely fashion to avoid the production of pollen. If pollen is allowed to produce the crop will be jeopardized. Tassels must be pulled straight out of the top of the corn plant, leaving all leaves with the plant. Workers are required to scan each row high and low to make certain all tassels are removed. In some fields, a cutter machine will cut the tips of the tassels from the female plants, followed by a puller machine that will go through and pull 40% - 85% of the tassels. Detasselers will then go through the fields to remove the remaining partial tassels that are not missed by the machine. Detasselers must remove 99.7% - 100% of the tassels in the female rows to discourage a female corn plant from pollinating itself. Meaning that crews can only miss three (3) of every one-thousand (1,000) plants before the job is deemed complete. When a worker misses greater than three (3) tassels of every one thousand (1000) plants an inspector will deem the job a failure, requesting that workers re-inspect the field to confirm the removal of missed tassels. If the worker is not mindful and removes leaves unnecessarily, or does not entirely remove tassels the crop will be harmed. Consequently, if workers are not cognizant of the noted standards one must maintain to detassel corn the crop will be damaged and adversely affect productivity.\n\nQuality Checker: The worker may be asked to check the quality by moving down a row checking quality to ensure that all seed tassels were sufficiently removed. They will report issues to work supervisor.\n\nOther Requirements: Workers seeking employment under this job order must be available for entire period requested by the employer. \n\nThe employer retains the right to discharge any obviously unqualified worker, malingerer, or recalcitrant worker who is physically able to complete the work, but does not demonstrate a willingness to perform the work necessary for the employer to grow a premium quality product, or for any other lawful reason.
