The Wyoming Stockgrower's program is great! For accomplishing their requirements, the pay is very competitive/comparable to other jobs. The ability to travel the state to different ranches without the long-term commitment is a HUGE plus. The opportunities to learn about different ranching styles is amazing. Plus there are opportunities to meet lifelong friends!!!
What I wish was different
With this internship, the hours and workload are determined by the ranch. Depending on the operation, the living conditions could be more or less favorable. Also, different ranches can be more or less geared toward the education of the intern. Depending on the experience you want, the opportunity can be tailored a little bit to fit your needs.
If I was to advise someone considering this position, I would say that an open mind and a hard working attitude will take you a long ways in this opportunity. Take no opportunity to learn or meet new people lightly. You never know how that one incident will completely change your future.
