Our apprenticeships are intended for those who aspire become leaders in ranch management. Applicants should possess experience working with their hands outdoors and demonstrate a strong interest in working with the land and animals. Apprentices learn by having significant areas of responsibility and by being intimately involved in day-to-day operations. Upon successful completion of the two-to-six year program, apprenticeship graduates are eligible for full-time placement at a Ranchlands-managed ranch or on other ranches.
This arrangement provides career advancement opportunities to alumni while also ensuring that Ranchlands has a strong corps of experienced ranch professionals who are intimately familiar with the Ranchlands program.
