Hoping someone can help. My husband and I are relocating to wyoming. We are looking for a small town where he can work on a ranch. I can do my job from anywhere so I have that covered. Can anyone give us any information to start on. Thank you

Best advice I can give you is to read through some of the existing threads. There have been several threads asking the same thing.

You can also look at http://www.city-data.com/city/Wyoming.html to get an idea of town sizes, location and demograhics and then come back with questions on each.

Your question is basically saying "Tell us about every all over Wyoming".

You need to narrow it down some, do you like mountains or prairie, is wind a factor, do you need to be close to larger towns for medical, shopping, etc... Do you enjoy outdoor things like camping, boating, fishing, hunting, etc...

I recommend finding the ranch job and then either using the ranch-provided housing (often a requirement because of remote location), or looking nearby if housing isn't included in wages. My favorite search sites are: Tri-State News, The Fence Post, Wyoming Livestock Journal, and Ranchworld Ads.

If your husband doesn't have all around ranch/livestock experience don't overlook starting at a feedlot. You learn a lot about bovine health and machinery if you work hard.

Good luck. I highly recommend ranching/ag as work.

Good ideas!

And...with Ag... we don't have to ask what they want to do in their 'free' time

Knowing any required proximity to civilization (or airports / college / internet connectivity) might be helpful. + the ?? above (Prairie or Mtn, windy or REALLY windy) & irrigated or non (There is a BIG different in summer labor hours and effort. )

I will always remember the MC trip I took through the Snowy Range in early 70's and the Lush hay operation (on west side, near Saratoga) being done with horses and antique hay bucks.

And the summer herding in northern Big Horns.

Good luck and have fun!
