Special Requirements

The employer confirms that a minimum of 90% of the work contract shall be performed on the range for the total number of workdays requested. The ranch consists of hundreds of square miles of ground and is home to many thousand head of livestock. The ranch housing is located on the ranch and is considered traditional style housing, not tented temporary housing which is commonly found in many Range Herder operations. Although workers will be living in fixed site housing, they do not work in the house and do in fact spend their days on the open range. On Sundays when a worker is given the day off, other ranch personnel work in coordination to cover this day but, If a herders immediate attention is required on the range, such as a predator attack, the range worker is alerted to it via his two way radio or cell phone, both of which are provided to the range worker at no charge to the worker.
