Job Description

Hand-On Farm Managers Ranch Hand/Cowboy Full-time. Year-around. Seasoned, experience required. Horseback operation. Colorado areas. Housing furnished plus good salary. 

In 1928, 385 acres were purchased creating the foundation of the ranching operation. This purchase has grown to become a four generation ranch. The ranch currently encompasses 10,000+ acres. The operation focuses on livestock and farming. 

The Raichart family runs 800-900 head of commercial cow/calf pairs, a 3000 +/- head feedlot, and has irrigated and dry land crops (wheat, corn, cane, alfalfa, and triticale). Most of the equipment is John Deere and Case Heavy machinery. Cattle are fed using tractor driven feeder/mixer wagons. Cattle are gathered on horseback, with UTVs, and on foot. 

The Escalante Ranch is a century old western cattle operation located on the Western Slope of Colorado.  It lies 25 miles south of Grand Junction and 12 miles northwest of Delta, Colorado.  Stretching from the Gunnison River to the top of the Uncompahgre Plateau, it covers approximately 6,000 deeded acres and over 100,000 acres of leased, private, BLM and Forest Service ground.  This contiguous block of land is approximately 6 miles wide and 30 miles long, with the elevation ranging from 4,600 feet along the river in the lower country to over 9,200 feet on the forest on top of the plateau.
