LIVESTOCK
Her elk are born and raised on the farm. She prefers people without prior experience to handle cattle. Doesn't consider them domestic animals. Takes patience to work with the animals. Can sense when the wind is coming from the wrong direction. Elk can be considered both livestock and wild animals. Can have anywhere from 200-250 elk. Talks about catching the baby calves within 24 hours, tagging them and vaccinating them. Will need some time to figure out who the mother is.
FARM EQUIPMENT
Mows paths through the fields. Carries shields with them, about 3 feet tall, to protect themselves from striking cows.
FARM BUSINESS
Has one girl that does most of the feeding and checking of livestock & another man, Mike, works with them also.
