Career Opportunities

We currently have the following posting:

General Farm Labourer:

Living Sky Beef is a progressive beef cattle operation located in Southern Saskatchewan, near Minton. Our business includes a commercial cow/calf herd with spring calving and fall calving cows, replacement heifers, a backgrounding operation and custom baling. We strive to run an efficient, sustainable beef operation by using technology, innovation and good old fashioned hard work!

We are looking for a full-time general farm labourer who can assist us in managing our beef cow/calf herd year-round, maintaining our grazing and pasture-land as well as work with our feeding and baling operations.

Duties may include feeding cattle and calves, operating/maintaining farm machinery and infrastructure, checking and treating cattle with health problems, maintaining livestock health records, and assisting with animal handling and processing (vaccine and health programs). During the spring, summer, fall months duties include grazing management and movements, overseeing calving, and cutting hay/operating the baler, hauling, stacking and loading bales, and maintaining farm infrastructure including water, fence and buildings.

The successful candidate does not need to have previous experience with beef cattle but must be eager to learn. They must also have the ability to work well with others or on their own. Long hours are required during certain seasons, but flexible in others. This position is physically demanding and requires a love of working in the outdoors in all kinds of Saskatchewan weather! Valid drivers’ licence is required, but we do not require a 1A.

We offer excellent working conditions with the opportunity to learn and develop skills, but require our team to be reliable and self motivated. We can assist the successful candidate in locating accommodations/housing in the area. Wages commensurate with experience. Start date negotiable.
