Ranch Hand in Cherokee, TX

Pasion Iberica Ranch LLC

Job description

We are an Iberian pig farm. Iberico is to pork what Wagyu us to beef – very high end meat. This breed is native to Spain and Portugal, only found in a handful of farms in the USA.
We are G.A.P. animal welfare certified, and our docile pigs are raised free range (like cattle), with no animal byproducts, antibiotics, or hormones.

We are looking for one more person to help the ranch manager get the daily work done.

Responsibilities include weighing, sorting, feeding and transporting the animals, cleaning farrowing pens, building and fixing fence, building and fixing waterers, maintaining equipment and the property in good order, and other responsibilities typical of a working ranch.

– have experience working with farm animals (not necessarily pigs)
