After completing the harvest (end of Oct., mid-November?) in SK, I will be moving to Calgary to help my fiancee go through school to become a butcher, and will be looking for full time work for the winter (until about the beginning of April).
For the past three years I have worked at a cattle (cow/calf, custom feeding cow/calf and steers, and a small purebred Limousin herd) farm of anywhere from 200 to 550 head at a time. I am comfortable around livestock and have experience sorting/handling bulls, cows and calves, processing calves and diagnosing and treating cows. I have experience driving and maintaining quads (450 and 700), pickup trucks, 2 ton dump trucks, 2wd, front wheel assist (with FEL) and 4wd tractors. I have a Saskatchewan class 5 drivers license (regular license) with a clean record, and a 3/4 ton 4wd pickup truck with a fifth wheel hitch that could accompany me here. My fiancee and I raise rabbits, chickens and sheep at our own farm, and butcher them ourselves.
I also have varied experience in construction and renovations, as well as working at a plant that produced bio-diesel from heated canola seed for a year.
I've done a lot of reading about permaculture, and try to incorporate those ideas and ethics into my life as much as possible.

I am looking for full time paid work around or in Calgary. Doesn't have to be farming-related. I have a positive attitude and I learn fast, and enjoy learning new skills through my employment. If you need a hand send me a PM.
