A beef cattle herdsman is responsible for the daily care and management of the cattle under their supervision.

Duties

A beef cattle herdsman is tasked with all aspects of maintaining the health of the cattle kept at their facility. Their duties generally include giving vaccinations, deworming, tagging or branding, feeding, calving, performing artificial inseminations, trimming hooves, keeping detailed health and production records, and working closely with the veterinarian. Computer skills are a plus since many farms have developed databases and spreadsheets to track their herd performance statistics.
The herdsman may also be involved with supervising other farm employees and staff members, ensuring that all tasks are completed properly. Additional duties may include transporting animals by trailer, assisting with marketing, raising hay or other forage crops, performing routine farm maintenance tasks, maintaining pastures, and handling any additional duties as assigned by the farm owner or manager.
A beef cattle herdsman is usually on call for any emergencies and must work some evenings, weekends, and holidays. Work hours may be greatly increased during particular seasons, so a candidate should have some flexibility to allow for that variation. Candidates for this role should also be prepared to work outdoors in widely varying weather and temperature conditions.
