What types of farming operations are of interest to you?
- Large Animal (eg cattle or sheep)
What farming practices do you plan on using?
Please elaborate on the type(s) of agricultural operation you plan on running:
I would use conventional methods of farming. Mainly I know that the best. I also have experience in seedstock cattle operations and if cattle were to be a part of the operation I would develop a seedstock program. That way I could sell value-added cattle and create a higher margin.
What is your farming/ranching experience?
- 5 years or less farm management
- Other experience/license/agricultural training
Tell us more about your agricultural experiences:
- Grew up on a wheat and hay farm. We also raised beef cattle. Have worked on farms and managed a livestock facility through college. Currently work at a bank in east Idaho as a credit analyst/loan officer. Have good experience with management practices and have a solid base knowledge of barley, wheat and hay production. I have also managed a hay baling crew that baled small, specialty hay bales for horse ranch back east. I help my dad run his 120 acres and own in on the cattle operation of 60 head.
How many acres are you currently farming/ranching? 120
Please briefly describe what you grow or raise currently: We are raising alfalfa hay as well as pasture grass. We get three crops of alfalfa hay and also one cutting of grass before our cows come off summer range.
