Keystone Conservation, a rancher-conservation group, is working on an innovative management system for land improvement and control of big predators with electric fencing and herding livestock. This project is known as The Rodear Initiative (RI) and is based in southwestern Montana. Learn more about RI on my Beef Producer blog, Fodder for Thought, by clicking HERE.
The Rodear Initiative is currently seeking to hire a Range Technician/Rider to implement the project. The Technician will be a contract, full-time, seasonal position, beginning in early June and ending in mid October, with the potential to become permanent seasonal. An individual or couple may fill the position. The technician(s) will work independently, under the guidance of the RI Project Director and Keystone Conservation Field Director, and will take the lead role in implementing the grazing plan on a day-to-day basis, including rodearing and fencing. Stockmanship skills including low-stress livestock handling and horsemanship are essential.
