Many men and women are employed at vacation ranches. These are commonly known as dude ranches, and they have been around for over a century now. This can be a very exciting line of work to get involved with especially if you appreciate cattle, horses, natural reservations, and the great outdoors. In this business, you are likely to work on a large ranch property or wide-open farmland. It is your job to assist vacationers and guests with having a real ranch experience. You may also have to deal with some souvenir sales and ranch renovating in this line of work.

Although jobs in the ranching business do call for some serious training and know-how, they do not typically demand a university degree. A lot depends on the reservation or dude ranch association you are employed with. For instance, some of these vacation ranches allow guests to interact with cattle and ride horses. It is your responsibility to make certain they are safe when doing these things. There are also hunting ranches that utilize a lot of land or property for natural hunting experiences. Again, you must be able to assist visitors with the hunting experience, and staying safe at all times. Working on a dude ranch can actually be a great deal of hard work at times.

In this line of work, you may have to deal with professionals that buy and sell livestock, as well as ranch owners. You will always have to work with a variety of guests who are on vacation or a fun trip as well.

Guest vacation ranches, or dude ranches, provide families and individuals with a way to escape the modern world and take a look at what it was like many years ago. Cattle drives, horseback riding, hunting, and fishing are all relaxing and fun activities that can bring families closer together. Ranches generally consist of a fair amount of land in order to offer several different activities. Campouts and game nights are often offered to keep guests having a good time even when the sun goes down. Look in a phone book or online to find phone numbers of ranches in an area that you're interested in visiting. Certain local associations may be another resource you can use to find various ranches. You can call and ask about their prices and what type of activities they have to do. Ask how much experience their staff has in the activities you're interested in to know that a person who is qualified to help you will be there. Make a reservation so you know they will have room for you when you're on your vacation. They may also tell you about special trips they're offering, such as a trail throughout the natural surroundings. Some ranches may be renovating certain areas to make them easier to house guests. If you're interested in working at a dude ranch, you can also call them and ask what jobs are available. Property prices for a dude ranch will fluctuate depending on the condition of the land and how many acres it consists of. If you want to buy or sell land you will find how to do so online or finding a real estate agent in a phone book. Property that's for sale will range in price, but can be a great way to start a farm, raise cattle, or to start your own dude ranch.
