SITZ Angus Ranch is a fourth generation, registered seedstock ranch located in Southwest Montana. Bob Sitz and Jim Sitz, run the ranch with their families in Harrison, MT and Dillon, MT, respectively. SITZ Angus raises black Angus cattle and has two production sales each year. SITZ Angus has proudly had an internship program on the ranch for over a decade and regularly hosts three interns each year. The mission of the SITZ Angus internship program is to teach and promote the cattle industry, agriculture, and western way of life to young agricultural leaders by building personal and working relationships to last a lifetime. Interns will assist in calving, tagging/processing, cleaning stalls, pairing out, doctoring calves, checking pregnant cows, branding, tattooing, doctoring, feeding, synchronizing for Al, and freeze-branding cattle. Interns may also help with the spring bull sale, delivering bulls, and farming. The typical schedule for the spring internship is 12 plus hours a day, six days a week. Calving season is hard work, we will calve out approximately 300 heifers and 750 cows with the majority of them due within 5 weeks of each other. The days are often fast paced with a need for high efficiency and attention to detail. We are proactive about calf health and due to extreme winter conditions interns and crew alike, are expected to be aware of cold stress and care for all calves. Some parts of the days are routine and others are dictated by conditions and work load. During the work day you will be expected to perform a lot of strenuous tasks right alongside the rest of our crew. Prior to applying, please understand that there will often be cold weather, and there will always be physical labor that must be done.
