What you'll do
My guests can meet me to enjoy riding in the back of the truck while we traverse the pastures “on safari” while the herds of 25-80 pursue the vehicle as they prance, gallop, and kick while impatiently anticipating hand fed treats. It’s particularly exciting with the long-horned cracker cows and their colorful calves! Calves and baby jackasses are regularly present. I invite guests to visit cattle at one or more locations to enjoy a safari ride, visit, feed, and learn about cattle and if they so desire, learn to pen, transport, and ear-tag the cattle. There will be numerous photo opportunities and it’s a great activity for children or adults as long as you follow all safety instructions.
All hosts must follow guidelines created with World Animal Protection.

I am a native born Floridian and have been involved in the cattle industry for 45+ years. I maintain my own and am also employed to maintain others’ beef cattle at several locations. I’m involved in activities involving routine care that I’ve recently learned are fun and interesting to those who are not regularly involved in the cattle industry.
